On Friday I announced the two finalists battling it out in my 'visualisations in the wild' contest. Over the weekend and right up to an hour ago I've been inundated with email messages, tweets and post comments from readers casting their vote for which visualisation they believe best captures the essence of this competition. The contest is now closed and I'm delighted to announce that Visualisation B, the Duracell Powercheck, has been declared the winner with 75.2% of the votes.

Congratulations to Jan Willem Tulp who wins a Full Conference Pass to the O’Reilly Strata ‘Making Data Work’ conference taking place in Santa Clara, CA in February 2011.

Commiserations go to Naomi B Robbins who was a very respectable runner-up and received a lot of support for her excellent submission but ultimately just not enough to beat Jan.

Many thanks to all who voted and also, once again, to those who entered the competition.
