Two awards offered annually. There will be one award given for the narrative map category and one given for the interactive map category.
Entries must have been created during the current academic year. There is no entry fee. The North American Cartographic Information Society (NACIS) recognizes the importance of dynamic mapping in cartography. They are sponsoring the Annual Student Dynamic Map Competition to promote cartographic excellence and innovation in this versatile medium. Each map will be judged by a panel of three professional cartographers. The winners will be announced (and demonstrated) during this year's NACIS annual meeting in Norfolk. The winners will also be announced in the following issue of Cartographic Perspectives. Students may enter as many times as they wish, but may only win one prize. Previous first-prize winners in either of the categories from this contest may not enter.
Entry forms are available from the North American Cartographic Information Society (NACIS) website. There is no need to specify which category the applicant enters the map into, this will be decided ... sign up for full scholarship deadline information.
