The UKHO Junior Mapmaker award is sponsored by the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office (UKHO), in conjunction with the British Cartographic Society (BCS), to encourage the creative and graphic representation, by children, of their environment. The awards are given every two years and comprise a prize and certificate for the overall winner in each age group.

The theme for the 2012 competition is “My Voyage to Treasure Island”. This could be based on any stretch of water – from a lake to a trip across an imaginary ocean. The map or chart should represent the encounters of that day. It may be hand drawn or computer generated (to a maximum size of A3).

There are 4 age categories (7 to 9; 10 to 11; 12 to 14 and 15 to 16 years – ages at 21 July 2012), with an overall winner chosen from each category:

The closing date for entries is 21 July 2012.

Full details, including the entry form can be found at www.cartography.org.uk by following the ‘Awards’ link.
