This is the second in a monthly series of infographic design contests here at GOOD. The topics, judges, and prizes may vary from month to month, but we'll always be asking the brilliant creative members of our community to help in our quest to make the world's data more accessible. Here's this month's project:

UPDATE: The submissions are in. You can view them here.

the OBJECTIVE
Make an infographic about neighborhoods and/or your neighborhood.

the ASSIGNMENT
As you may know, our next issue is the Neighborhoods issue. We've asked for and received tons of help from you all in thinking of ideas. But we'll be honest, we're having a hard time thinking of topics for our infographics to be included in the issue. There will be some, but we're turning to you for support. Can you make an infographic—locally or nationally focused—that sums up something interesting about the contrast between different neighborhoods (say, ethnicity, income, education level, anything else), or what makes your individual neighborhoods so special?

the REQUIREMENTS
Send us an email at projects[at]goodinc[dot]com with your infographic or post it to GOOD's Community Blog with the tag "March 2010 Transparency Contest." It can be in any image format, but it should be high enough resolution that it can be printed at 300 dpi. It should also be 2,000 pixels wide. Make sure to include your sources, and a brief (one- or two-sentence) introduction to your concept. We’ll take submissions now through March 9. The winning entry will be announced on March 16, featured on our homepage, and printed in the next issue of GOOD. We’ll send a GOOD T-shirt and a free subscription (or gift subscription) to the winner.

RESEARCH and INSPIRATION

ZipSkinny is a website that aggregates the Census's zip-code based data. You can find that raw data here. Also, check out our Neighborhoods issue post for tons of ideas about Neighborhoods that might inspire you. Finally, if you find anything great, post it in the comments. No extra credit will be given for special information. Work together.

Culture

The Free the Nipple movement is trying to remove the stigma on women's breasts by making it culturally acceptable and legal for women to go topless in public. But it turns out, Free the Nipple might be fighting on the wrong front and should be focusing on freeing the nipple in a place you'd never expect. Your own home.

A woman in Utah is facing criminal charges for not wearing a shirt in her house, with prosecutors arguing that women's chests are culturally considered lewd.

In August, the Recording Academy hired their first female CEO, Deborah Dugan. Ten days before the Grammys, Dugan was placed on administrative leave for misconduct allegations after a female employee said Dugan was "abusive" and created a "toxic and intolerable" work environment. However, Dugan says she was actually removed from her position for complaining to human resources about sexual harassment, pay disparities, and conflicts of interest in the award show's nomination process.

Just five days before the Grammys, Dugan filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and her claims are many. Dugan says she was paid less than former CEO Neil Portnow. In 2018, Portnow received criticism for saying women need to "step up" when only two female acts won Grammys. Portnow decided to not renew his contract shortly after. Dugan says she was also asked to hire Portnow as a consultant for $750,000 a year, which she refused to do.
