The call for the 2023 ISHMap Prize for Projects in Map History is now open.

The ISHMap Prize in Map History, awarded every two years and presented at the ISHMap General Meeting in odd-numbered years, recognizes a project that explores the history of maps and mapping outside of the format of an academic paper, book, or edited collection in way that increases accessibility and engagement with maps and map history through innovative presentation. The first Prize and honorable mentions were awarded to projects in Europe, the Americas and Asia in 2021.

The prize uplifts recent projects that seek to expand the subjects, audience, scope, and/or methodology of engaging with the history of maps and mapping. Projects can take many forms including, but in no way limited to, physical exhibitions, datasets, online exhibitions, multimedia projects such as podcasts and films, thematic maps, games, and digital products. See here for details.

Deadline for application for 2023: December 31, 2022.

Hi, Just to say "The first Prize and honorable mentions were awarded to projects in Europe, the Americas and Asia in 2021." link doesn't work. Best wishes, Tim
