Miljenko Lapaine


The Barbara Petchenik Award was created by the International Cartographic Association (ICA) in 1993 as a memorial for Barbara Petchenik, a past Vice President of the ICA and cartographer who had a lifelong interest in maps for children. The awards are given out every two years, during the International Cartographic Conference. If possible, at least one award is given to each continent, with special attentation paid to the age of the author. The aim of the award is to promote children's creative representation of the world in graphic form, improve their cartographic and environment perception.

The competition in Croatia was organized by the Croatian Cartographic Society. We received 171 children's drawing from 32 institutions, including kindergartens, elementary and high schools. The jury of Assist. Prof. Dr. Ivka Kljajić, Prof. Dr. Miljenko Lapaine and Ana Kuveždić Divjak from the Faculty of Geodesy of the University of Zagreb and Assoc. Prof. Ines Krasić and Igor Čabraja from the Academy of Fine Arts of the University of Zagreb selected six best drawings with the theme My place in today's world which are going to be presented at the exhibition within the 26th International Cartographic Conference in Dresden, August 25-30, 2013.
