Loy Award for Excellence in Cartography Recipients

Recipients of this year’s Bill Loy Award for Excellence in Cartography were announced at the last Thursday Geography Tea of the year. This year we had two winners and one honorable mention. You will see that there is a theme (think: bugs/ musicians) to the winners, while the honorable mention was one of the first online map submissions for this award. The winners received a $1,000, and the honorable mention received $500.
