News on the Barbara Petchenik competition

The ICA Commission on Cartography and Children is happy to announce updates from the Barbara Petchenik competition:

New edition of Children Map the World

Esri published a new book using map drawings sent to the competition in 2015.

Children Map the World: Commemorating the International Map Year, volume 4, presents 50 maps created by children ages 5 to 15 for the 2015 International Cartographic Association map design competition, held in Brazil. These drawings convey powerful messages and emotions that reflect the competition’s theme, “My Place in Today’s World.” This volume includes a special atlas of 50 additional maps selected from previous competitions. Featured in part two of this book, the atlas reflects a worldwide celebration of these outstanding maps and their unique role in our world.

Editors José Jesús Reyes Nuñez (Hungary), Carla Cristina R. G. de Sena (Brazil), Necla Ulugtekin (Turkey), and Pilar Sánchez-Ortiz Rodríguez (Spain) are university-level educators. Their collective expertise encompasses the fields of geography, cartography, map design, 3D cartographic modeling, map projections, and education as it relates to children and mapping.

ISBN: 9781589484788    2017   150 pages   $29.99
