EITI Infographic Competition

Open Data, Build Trust

The EITI International Secretariat 2019 Infographic Competition “Open Data, Build Trust” is now open.

The competition encourages EITI stakeholders to use the medium of infographics to demonstrate the impact of natural resource transparency in their country.

The deadline for submissions has been extended to 5 May 2019, 23:00 CEST. 


Infographic submissions should demonstrate the theme “Open Data, Build Trust” by showing how natural resource data is being used at the national and/or subnational level to build trust among different stakeholders, actors and communities.

The infographic should go beyond outlining the EITI process - it should showcase how extractives data is evolving to be more accessible, usable and timely so as to promote inclusive development and benefit the citizens and communities. It should also demonstrate how multi-stakeholderism contributes to this goal.

Infographics may be submitted in English, French, Spanish or Russian.


One winner will be selected and announced in early May 2019.

The winner will be invited and sponsored to attend the EITI Global Conference to be held in Paris on 18-19 June, including travel and accommodation costs. This prize will be awarded to one person only.

Both the winning and shortlisted infographics may be featured on the EITI website and EITI social media channels. The winning infographic may also be featured at the EITI Global Conference.
