Dear friends and colleagues,
It’s a great pleasure and honor to announce the Official Call for the Barbara Petchenik Children’s Map Competition 2023.
This year there are no significant changes for the participants in the competition. The theme will be again: A map of my future world (as selected by our colleagues from 17 countries).
All documents related to the organization of the next competition can be found here:
- General rules for the Barbara Petchenik Competition 2023
- Rules for the national coordinators
- Rules for teachers and parents
- Parent permission form: the permission form that should be signed by parents or legal representatives
- Author data form: an optional data form to be annexed to the drawings selected for the international competition
As became usual in the last years, national coordinators will be invited to participate in an e-mail-based voting process to select the winner works in June 2023. By this reason it is very important to send names and e-mails of national coordinators by e-mail for the Chair and Vice-Chair of ICA Commission on Cartography and Children, otherwise we cannot ensure our direct contact for the invitation.
For more detailed information about the competition, please visit the Petchenik section on the ICA website, the website of the Commission on Cartography and Children or their Facebook page.
