Students – now that you are finished with your final GIS projects (you are finished, right?) why not submit them to one of these upcoming competitions. Bucknell students have won awards in other map competitions – let’s do it again:
The 2011 NCGE Map Gallery Committee invites you to submit a map for display during the 2011 Conference. All GIS maps are welcome. The maps will be judged by a panel of peers, with the exception of the People’s Choice Award, which will be voted on by the Conference attendees. The Map Contest will feature two award categories and the winners will be announced at the closing session on Saturday, August 6, 2011. Please review the minimum requirements and categories carefully when designing the content of your map entry.
Best Cartographic Design (Higher Ed., K-12 & People’s Choice) – Awarded to the map that artistically employs the elements of cartography without compromising use and functionality. Maps will be judged on fundamental cartographic principles including figure ground representations, visual hierarchy, color selection, typography, symbology, overall aesthetic appearance, etc.
Best Analysis (Higher Ed., K-12 & People’s Choice) – Awarded to the map that is best designed to display the results of spatial data analysis and presents the information in an unbiased way, allowing the viewer to extract their own conclusions, utilizing the map as a tool.

Every map tells a story. Share your most interesting web map or mobile app in our Storytelling with Maps Contest. Entries will be judged on how well they make the subject matter interesting, understandable, and engaging. Web map and mobile app entries can be submitted April 29 – June 10, 2011. Prizes will be awarded for first, second, and third place in each category. Winners will be announced in July at the 2011 Esri International User Conference (Esri UC) in San Diego, California.
