This report describes the 24th Annual Graph Drawing Contest, held in conjunction with the 25th International Symposium on Graph Drawing (GD’17) in Boston, United States of America. The purpose of the contest is to monitor and challenge the current state of the art in graph-drawing technology.



The contest committee would like to thank the generous sponsors of the symposium, Dennis van der Wals for programming most of the tool for the manual category, and all the contestants for their participation. Further details including all submitted drawings and challenge graphs can be found at the contest website:
