What is the 2022 ArcGIS StoryMaps Competition?

The 2022 ArcGIS StoryMaps Competition invited storytellers globally to build stories about an idea, challenge, or solution through innovative data visualization techniques. Stories must be created with ArcGIS StoryMaps. Storytellers submitted stories in one of five categories:

  • Digital humanities and popular culture
  • Health and safety
  • Humanitarian and social justice
  • Nature and physical science
  • Planning and infrastructure

Our guest judges selected a winner and a runner up in each of the categories. Plus, Esri’s StoryMaps team crowned winners of three special awards: most effective visual language, best map choreography, and most innovative use of data for storytelling.

Congratulations to our inspiring storytellers.
