If you're one of the eight people who are in any way connected to me on social media, you would have already been bludgeoned by my blathering about placing second (or "running up first," because that's what first runner-ups do) in a "nationwide data visualization contest of around 200 teams/entries" (my own inflated description).
It's called the DataSeer Grab Challenge 2017.
DataSeer - an analytics and data science training and consulting firm; adjudicated the competition and sponsored the prizes
Grab - an Asian ride-hailing app; provided the data and sponsored the prizes
Challenge - "a task or situation that tests someone's abilities" (c/o Google)
2017 - the current year
AIM Analytics Club - the responsive data science student organization at the Asian Institute of Management; organized and ran the contest and the awarding ceremonies
Jay Manahan - the shameless, un-teamed douche who lost and cried till the organizers got fed up and relented to give him second place
Here's a visualization (funnel chart) of the journey to dataviz bridesmaid town:

Here's additional proof that my news source is not Mr. Snuffleupagus:
Finally, if you're in the mood for a no-bearing visual exercise, here's a PDF of the second-place dataviz finish in question.
Because truthfully, I did.
