Arte RanganathanArte Ranganathan owns the website Presentation-Process, along with her husband Ramgopal. Their mission is to help business presenters create more visual and creative presentations. The duo won the Presentation Horror Story Contest on SlideShare in 2010.

In this conversation, Arte discusses their Creative Diagram Contest.

Geetesh: Arte, tell us about your Creative Diagram Contest and what motivated you to organize this contest.

Arte: Geetesh, first off thanks for letting us share our thoughts on this forum with your readers.

Over the years, we've seen that many presenters just display a set of data or information on their slides and expect the audience to do all the processing. The presenters don't take the effort to make their message interesting or memorable. Naturally, the audience of such presentations either ignores the slides completely, or interprets the information wrongly.

Creating visual presentations is definitely worth the effort to improve message effectiveness. Providing a good analogy, metaphor, or comparison makes a presentation interesting. It provides a hook for audience to remember the presentation. We recommend representing business concepts using simple diagrams.

Our website Presentation-Process helps business presenters think more visually and creatively. This initiative of launching the Creative Diagram Contest is aimed to further the cause. We want people to know how easy it is to create visual presentations. It's the first time ever we are running this contest, and we are really excited about it!

What we want the contestants to do is to take a simple idea, and make it over visually in a slide, and tell us why it is better and how they did it. Here is an example of a creative way to represent the 3 stages of Ideation.

For those who wish to participate in this contest and showcase their creative skills, here is the link to the contest. Contest entries have been accepted since May 23rd, 2012 and will continue being accepted until June 20th, 2012.

Geetesh: How will you judge these entries, and is there a prize for the winners?

Arte: The initial round of finalists will be decided by us, the team at Presentation-Process. The finalists will be evaluated by a panel of judges who are presentation experts. Geetesh, it's a pleasure to have you on-board as a judge as well.

There are a number of grand prizes for the best visual concept, best visual design and most popular entry online. There are other prizes for well-written tutorials as well as early bird prizes. Top prizes include our PowerPoint Charts CEO Pack worth $299.

We look forward to a lot of entries that will help other presenters make better presentations!
