Results of the Children's World Map Competition

Miljenko Lapaine


The Barbara Petchenik Prize was launched by the International Cartographic Association (ICA) in 1993 in memory of Barbara Petchenik, the Association's vice president and cartographer who worked with maps and children all her life. Awards are given every two years during an international cartographic conference, pre­fe­ra­bly at least one for each continent, with special attention to the age of the child who created the artwork. The goals of the competition are to promo­te children's creative presentation of the world in graphic form, to improve their cartographic perception and perception of the envi­ro­n­ment.
