NACIS 2017 Annual Meeting - Montréal

NACIS 2017 Student Map and Poster Competition Registration

We encourage all students to submit their maps and map-related technical and research posters. Two prizes of $500 USD each will be awarded for the best map/poster in each category: Cartographic Design and Research Quality. Winners are chosen by ballot of all conference attendees. There is no need to indicate which category you are entering your map in, all entries are open to either category.

There is no digital upload of your poster. You are expected to print and bring your poster to the conference in Colorado Springs, or arrange to have it delivered to the conference.
