CaGIS Announces 33rd Annual Map Competition

The Cartography and Geographic Information Society of the American Congress on Surveying and Mapping has announced this year's map design competition. The deadline for entry is January 15, 2006.
The purpose of the competition is to promote interest in map design and to recognize significant design advances in cartography. The focus of this competition is design; therefore, noted cartographers judge the entries based on creativity and cartographic design criteria: color, overall design and impression, craftsmanship, and typography.

The competition is open to all map-makers in the United States and Canada for maps completed and/or published during 2005.
There are both student and professional categories. For more information, including an entry form go here. Wondering how tough the competition is? Take a look at some past winners here.
