This report describes the 25th Annual Graph Drawing Contest, held in conjunction with the 26th International Symposium on Graph Drawing and Network Visualization (GD’18) in Barcelona, Spain. The mission of the Graph Drawing Contest is to monitor and challenge the current state of the art in graph-drawing technology.



The contest committee would like to thank the organizing committee of the conference for printing the posters and providing a room with hardware for the live challenge; the generous sponsors of the symposium, in particular Springer for contributing prizes; and all the contestants for their participation. Further details including all submitted drawings and challenge graphs can be found at the contest website:
