SURPRISE! – Hand-Drawn Map Contest Opens to All!

Quick Link: MAP CONTEST REGISTRATION

The WLIA Map Contest Committee is pleased to announce the opening of a new Hand-Drawn Map Category in this year’s Map Contest!

This new category allows you to share your geographic knowledge, creative ideas, and artistic abilities without having to power-up your mapping software! Follow the guidelines below and submit your map before the February 8th deadline. Feel free to share this with your colleagues or map-curious friends and encourage them to get their ideas on paper!

Theme: A Heart for Your Home(town) – Focus your map on this concept, how so is up to you! A sample map is available, but feel free to broaden or better-focus your horizons!

Eligible Map-Making Materials: Paper (any size), and any drawing instruments that you have!

To Submit Your Map: Take a photo or scan your completed map, and submit the image file as a Map Contest entry on the Map Contest Registration page.

Prizes!: In addition to the usual ribbons, the winner of this category will receive a copy of How to Make Hand-Drawn Maps! I may be biased, but I have this book and I think it rocks!

Questions?: If you have any questions about this new category, please contact Colter Sikora at colter.sikora@wisconsin.gov. If additional information needs to be shared for the good of the Contest, they will be posted at the end of this article
