All mapmakers, be they professional, amateur, or somewhere in between, are invited to submit their work to the 2014 edition of the Atlas of Design. Every two years, we publish a new volume of full-color maps, selected from a worldwide competition and judged by an expert panel. Our aim is to assemble a book that honors some of the world’s best cartography and inspires readers toward new understandings of the power and beauty of great maps.
We hope you’ll help us out by submitting your work for consideration. The deadline is February 28th, 2014. To learn more about our competition, and read our Call for Submissions, visit atlasofdesign.org/call.
We also hope you’ll help us out by spreading the word about our competition. There are a lot of mapmakers out there, and we’re trying to reach as many of them as we can, in as many languages as we can. We want the Atlas of Design to show off the world’s best cartography.
The Atlas of Design is a project of the North American Cartographic Information Society (nacis.org). To learn more about the Atlas, stop by atlasofdesign.org. You can also find us on Twitter @NACIS_Atlas.
