ICA Award Medals

The ICA Committee for the Selection of Award Recipients is willing to receive nominations for ICA Awards from national and affiliate members of the Association.

The ICA Awards Committee makes recommendations for two types of awards:

  • The Carl Mannerfelt Gold Medal honours cartographers of outstanding merit who have made significant contributions of an original nature to the field of cartography; it is awarded only on rare occasions in order to emphasise its distinction. Who is this medal named after?
  • The ICA Honorary Fellowship is for cartographers of international reputation who have made special contribution to the ICA. It includes a bronze medal.

Cartographers should not be awarded when they serve in the Executive Committee, except for very special circumstances. National ICA Committees or Commission chairs may submit nominations for ICA Awards to the Committee until 6 months prior to an ICA Conference. The nominations must be accompanied with draft citations for the nominees. The Awards Committee submits its proposals to the ICA President with draft citations for the nominees 3 months prior to an International Cartographic Conference.
