Call for Posters at AAG 2019: Avenza Competition for Cartographic Design

Avenza Systems and the Cartography Specialty Group present a sponsored poster competition for the 2019 AAG meeting in Washington, DC.

In addition, submissions should include a statement (250 words or less) describing the design goals. For display at the conference, submissions other than standard posters must be accompanied by a visual summary of the poster with links to the entry in its native format. Prize money will be $500, $300, and $200 for first, second, and third place, respectively.
