The submissions for the Cartography Design Annual #2 are now open. Any map published in 2008 is eligible for inclusion. We will be collecting submissions until May 31st, 2009, at which point we will make our selections. You must submit a JPG, GIF, or PNG image of your map with the submission form. The file size is limited to 1MB, but these images will just be used for the selection process. If your map is selected we will contact you to get a high-resolution version.

If you have not seen or heard of the Cartography Design Annual you can go to the website for more information.

While this is not technically a competition or an award, we will most likely not have room for all submissions, so maps will be chosen based on their design merits - aesthetic design and clarity of communication. You may submit as many maps as you would like, but each map should be submitted separately.

We hope to have the Cartography Design Annual #2 available for sale in early July. We are looking at new methods for printing and fulfilling the books to improve the quality and process.

We are also planning on offering reprints of maps featured in the Annual with permission form the copyright holders. If you choose to participate in the reprints, you will of course get a share of the proceeds. We will handle the transactions, printing, and fulfillment of the reprints, all you have to do is give us a press-ready file and permission.

If you have any questions you can contact us through the website.

Glad you're doing this again!
Will there be an option for those of us who have our map for sale via our own web site?

I purchased the design annual #1 (thanks to the big banner at the top of CartoTalk!) a few months ago and I keep it by my desk for a dose of inspiration every now and then. Great book! Glad to see that you will be making a new one every year. Helps us all keep up-to-date with the latest in carto styling.

If you mean including a map you already sell in the Design Annual "Store" then we can probably work something out.

Is the Design Annual #2 still on track for publication? It's August but I see the website lists a July release date.

The Design Annual #2 has been delayed for a number of reasons. I don't have a new publication date yet, but will announce it as soon as I know.

Yes, it will absolutely be ready for sale in December. I am just putting the finishing touches on it now.

With the recent changes to managing this site, is the design annual something that is going to make it to year three?

I hope so.

Yes, the Design Annual will be continued and next year will most likely go more smoothly than this year.
