      Dear Dharmendrasinh M. Chauhan,
      Thank you for your question! The Barbara Petchenik Competition is organized in the following way: ICA member countries organize a national competition, whose winning entries are then forwarded to the international competition. The next competition will be held in 2015. Details will be published soon. I also forwarded your message to Jesus Reyes, chair of the ICA Commission on Cartography and Children. He will give you more details on how to proceed.
      Best regards, Manuela Schmidt
