The BCS John C Bartholomew Award for Small Scale Mapping 2011

There’s now one more month to get your entry in for the British Cartographic Society (BCS) John C. Bartholomew Award for Small Scale Mapping. The closing date for the 2011 BCS Awards entries has now been extended until 31 March.

The John C. Bartholomew Award is presented for originality and excellence in the field of thematic (non-topographic, 1:100,000 and smaller) cartography, with emphasis on effective communication of the intended theme or themes. The award comprises a crystal trophy to be retained by the winner, £500 prize and a framed certificate, sponsored by ourselves Collins Geo through
CollinsBartholomew and the family of the late John C. Bartholomew. The winning entry will be put forward for the overall BCS Award.

Past winners have been so diverse as to include a wildlife and low flying avoidance map from the British Antarctic Survey, a map of key battles during the American Civil War, an undersea map of the waters around New Zealand, a thematic atlas of China and a surnames map of Ireland.

BCS Awards entries will be exhibited at the BCS Annual Symposium (8 - 10 June 2011, Shrigley Hall, Nr. Macclesfield, Cheshire) and the winners will be published in the Cartographic Journal and on the BCS website following the Awards ceremony.
