Custom Dashboards Competition

Analytics glory, Google Play prize money, and the chance for your work to be reviewed by world-leading Google Analytics experts - it’s competition time.

We’ve launched a competition – with the promise of prizes and digital analytics glory – to find the best Custom Dashboards that you can create. Your dashboards will be judged by some of the finest Google Analytics minds out there, with three guest judges from Google, Justin Cutroni, Daniel Weisberg, and Adam Singer, and Loves Data’s Benjamin Mangold.

Creating Custom Dashboards within Google Analytics gives you the chance to focus your data on the questions and metrics that are important to your business. The judges will be looking for entries that help solve business questions, make analysis easier, are creative, and help data and trends stand out.


Aside from having your work reviewed by Google experts such as Justin Cutroni, the winners will receive Google Play Gift Cards and other Google schwag, as well as a special Analytics Champion badge to put on your social channels.

  • 1st place receives $400 in Google Play Gift Cards
  • 2nd place receives $200 in Google Play Gift Cards
  • 3rd place receives $100 in Google Play Gift Cards

A few things to keep in mind – your entry needs to have a minimum of four widgets. If you decide to use filters, make sure they work! If your entry has one widget, or has a widget filter that breaks the report, then your entry will be disqualified. Full terms and conditions can be found on the competition page.

We’re really keen to see what the analytics community can come up with! After the competition we will publish a number of the entries, along with your name, so the analytics awesomeness is shared around. So start pulling those widgets together and enter now! The competition closes on the 31st December, with the winners being announced on the 17th of January.
