International Cartographic Exhibition

USNC Travel Funding | ICA scholarships | International Cartographic Exhibition | Children’s Map Competition | U.S. National Report | ICA General Assembly | USNC Members

Participation is open to all U.S. map makers and others to submit their cartographic products, including paper maps and charts, atlases, digital products, digital services, educational cartographic products, and other cartographic products (including globes and tactile maps) for entry in the International Cartographic Exhibition (ICE). All submitted products must have been produced or modified after December 2021 (the date of the last ICC). All submitted products will be judged by a cartographic jury during the ICE, and winners will be announced at the close of the conference.

NEW! There are seven categories for submissions—three of them (Atlases, Educational Products, Other Cartographic Products) will be exhibited on-site at the conference. Items in the online exhibition will be accessible to delegates via the conference website, and they will also be displayed on screens at the conference venue.

Note: All items accepted for the online exhibition will be uploaded to the online platform. Uploaded items, e.g., PDFs, will be viewed in a browser and will therefore be downloadable by anyone who views them. It is therefore essential to include a copyright information on items that are uploaded.

NEW! Only 18 online entries and 3 physical entries will be allowed per ICA National Member. Thus, the selection of entries is based on a competitive evaluation of submitted materials, as described on pages 10 and 11 of this PDF document:

Please submit all requited materials to the U.S. Exhibitor Representative, Aileen Buckley, by 1 May 2023. The entries selected for exhibition will be announced 10 May 2023 in advance of the deadline for submissions to the ICE on 15 May 2023.
