International Cartographic Exhibition

Participation is open to all U.S. map makers and others to submit their cartographic products 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 six categories for submissions—three of them (Atlases, Educational Cartographic Products, Physical Cartographic Products) will be exhibited on-site at the conference. Map Products, Chart Products, Story Maps, and Digital Cartographic Products and Services will be displayed online through the conference website.

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 copyright information on items that are uploaded.

NEW! There is a limit to the number of entries in each of the categories (see for each ICA Member Nation, so the selection of the final ICE entries from the U.S. will be based on a competitive evaluation of submitted materials.
