Cybersecurity Visuals Challenge

Offered by William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and OpenIDEO

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.

Note that we are only able to consider individual contributions during the evaluation process due to legal considerations. Submissions from teams will be ineligible to proceed to the shortlist.

We welcome submissions of any artistic medium that feel they can satisfy the Evaluation Criteria. This includes but is not limited to graphic design, illustration, comics, video, animation, and infographic.

To be considered for winning this Challenge, we are asking that all shortlisted finalists consent to free licensure via the Creative Commons website. We’ll provide more guidance to shortlisted participants during the Challenge. We believe that this type of licensing helps ensure your work reaches the widest possible audience by giving permission in advance for others to republish it. More importantly, it helps advance knowledge because it allows others to build on your work—remixing it into new forms (while still acknowledging your role in creating the underlying content).

Note that employees, relatives, and officers of the Hewlett Foundation are not eligible to win. Employees of IDEO are not eligible to win.
