    Announcing the 2015 Children's Map Competition

    The Barbara Petchenik Award was created by the International Cartographic Association in 1993 as a memorial for Barbara Petchenik, a past Vice president of the ICA and cartographer who worked through her life with maps related to children. The aim of the contest is to promote the creative representation of the world in graphic form by children.

    NZCS is proud to host the New Zealand competition again.  Registrations for 2015 are now open.
