OpenIDEO Cybersecurity Visuals Challenge 2019 ($7,000 cash prize)

Application Deadline: September 23rd, 2019

Too often, visuals in the cybersecurity space reflect surface level understanding influenced by sensationalist media. We see pictures of locks, white men in hoodies, or green 1s and 0s that do little to convey the reality of this complicated, critically important topic.

With this Challenge, we hope to elevate imagery that better represents the cybersecurity space in an accessible and compelling manner.

How might we reimagine a more compelling and relatable visual language for cybersecurity?

Visual creators from diverse backgrounds eager to apply their skill set to this important work.

Eligible countries include: Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Colombia, France, Germany, India, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, Peru, South Africa, Spain, United Kingdom, and United States of America.
