All About Me competition invites students to develop new kinds of creative and visual ways of presenting the public administration register data of Finnish citizens.
As source material, participants receive data for an imaginary citizen, including information on place of residence, property, vehicles owned, and family. The goal is to design the visual display of this information: how figures, labels, and names are to be presented as clearly as possible and in a visually impressive way.
The competition aims to bring forth a fresh approach to presenting individuals’ register data’. The All About Me competition winner’s proposal will be made use of in marketing the renewed citizen’s service view in the Suomi.fi service, for example by taking the winner’s work and trying it out in public places. The final result is an innovative internet service or webpage!
The competition is aimed at university students, and is being run by the Population Register Centre, the Ministry of Finance, and Aalto University Media Factory. All proposals that make it to the final will receive a prize of €7000, and the competition winner will receive an additional €8000.
The competition is comprised of two stages. In the first stage the jury will choose a maximum of three proposals, which are then carried out. The competition winner is then chosen based on a public vote at the beginning of 2016.
The All About Me competition winner’s proposal will be made use of in marketing the renewed citizen’s service view in the Suomi.fi service, for example by taking the winner’s work and trying it out in public places. The beta.suomi.fi trail version of the citizen’s service view will be launched at the end of 2015.
The competition begins at 12pm on 1 April 2015. Competition entries must be submitted by 4pm on 31 August 2015 at the latest.
Additional information and the competition rules can be found at allaboutme.suomi.fi. Aalto University Media Factory is responsible for the practical running of the competition up until the selection of the finalists. The members of the competition jury will be published in September 2015.
