This is a reminder that the NEMO Map Design Competition deadline is
quickly approaching. The submission deadline is April 15, 2007.

The competition is open to all mapmakers living in one of the following
states: Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island,
Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, and Pennsylvania. The maps
must have been completed between June 1, 2006, and April 15, 2007. The
competition has been established both to honor mapmakers in the
Northeast and to promote map making and best practices. Categories have
been established to honor professional and amateur mapmakers and those
in high school, undergraduate, and graduate programs. Groups composed
of up to four students may submit collaborative projects. Winning maps
will be displayed on the NEMO Web site (www.northeastmap.org). As
anticipated, winners will receive awards presented at the NEMO Annual
Meeting to be held in New York City, June 7-8, 2007 (check the Web site
for updates). Judging will be based on sound cartographic guidelines.
Data presentation and the relevance of the data to problem solving will
be considered heavily. Judging will focus on the appropriate use of
technology and originality, as well. Additional criteria are listed in
the competition document on the NEMO Web site.
