British Cartographic Society Children’s Map Competition for 2016


The BCS Children’s Map Competition is sponsored by the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office (UKHO) 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 2016 competition will be “Our Coastal Heritage”. This could be based on any area or any period - it could show how elements from different periods interact to make up the overall scene or how human and natural forces have changed the land- and sea-scape.


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 31 August 2016), with an overall winner chosen from each category:

The closing date for entries will be 26 March 2016.


Full details, including the entry form will be posted on the society’s website later this year - www.cartography.org.uk – and can be found by following the ‘Awards’ link.
