Digg has announced the winners of the Digg API Visualization Contest. You can read about them here on Digg. Ten finalists were selected by the contest team and then Digg community members used their diggs to vote for the winners. The winner? Digg City, shows the 10 newest popular stories. The more popular the story gets, the taller the building. When someone diggs the story a stick figure of that user is added. Figure goes inside the building he has just Dugg.

You can see the second and third place winners in our earlier coverage here and see the Digg API Profile here.
