The goal would be to "package and summarize" member participation information so that the customer team has more information about the types of Topcoder Community Members who participated in their project. It will be used as a one page summary and presented to the customer who will then have license to use the information as they see fit in their external (or internal) marketing efforts.

IMPORTANT - Infographic Design considerations!!
- Looking for the infographic to be a combination of text and graphical representation.
- The graphics should convince or compel viewers to understand the purpose of this challenge.
- Please use either Topcoder Brand Standards for Design or IBM Design Language (one or the other, not both) as part of the first round submissions.
- These infographic will be used in social media, websites, presentations etc!
- Make sure to have your design as scalable vectors, so we could resize it any required size.
- Please have your infographic in a landscape format - you can have an aspect ratio of 16:9 (note: the provided mockup is in a portrait format but we want it to a landscape)

Required Infographic Details:
