Children's Map Competition 2019

Children's Maps 2019

NZCS is proud to host the New Zealand Children's Map Competition

Competition Objectives

The objectives of the competition are to promote children’s creative representation of the world, to enhance their cartographic awareness, and to make them more conscious of their environment.

The competition judges will select up to six maps to be New Zealand’s entries for the international Barbara Petchenik Children’s Map Competition 2019. This competition will be held in conjunction with the International Cartographic Conference in Tokyo, Japan, 15-20 July 2019.

The amazingly creative winning maps can be seen on the 2019 Winners page. Winning students will receive some great sponsor prizes so a big thank you to our generous sponsors.
