President’s Blog #13e: ICA Map Awards at the 30th ICC

Dear ICA Colleagues,

At every biennial International Cartographic Conferences an International Map Exhibition is organized by ICA, where map products originating from ICA member countries and affiliate members are exhibited. An international jury selects the best entries in various categories.

From 13–17 December 2021 a total of 410 maps and related objects from 32 ICA members were displayed at the Italian Geographic Military Institute in Florence. As usual, the exhibition was open to the public and well visited during all day. A virtual exhibition can still be viewed at geografia-applicata.it.

An international jury selected 18 awards in six categories, reaching from Maps on Panels, Charts on Panels, Atlases, Digital Products and Educational Products, to Other Products. In addition, a popular vote was conducted online, which resulted in 8 additional awards for six categories. All map awards were presented by the jury at the Closing Ceremony on 18 December in the beautiful Sala Pegaso in Palazzo Guadagni Strozzi Sacrati.
