UPDATE: We’re pleased to announce that the 2020 GeoHipster calendar is available to order! For less than $15 US, you get a 2020 calendar that features 13 amazing maps from the following authors: Dylan Moriarty (January), Raluca Nicola (February), Heikki Vesanto (March), Nikita Slavin (April), Mark Ireland (May), Megan Gall (June), Dan Fourquet (July), Victoria Johnson (August), Christopher Pollard (September), Joshua Stevens (October), Pete King (November), Benjamin Hennig (December), and Greg Fiske (Cover). As we acknowledged in our blog post, this calendar came together with the help of a lot of people. Thanks!
Order yours today to get the only calendar that marks #PostGIS Day, along with some other choice map-related “holidays”. What a steal!
For future reference, below was our call for maps issued in Fall of 2019:
We’re excited to issue the call for maps for contributions for the 2020 GeoHipster calendar.
So, send us your maps!
- Please note that we will place a semi-transparent box containing author information, the GeoHipster logo, and, potentially, a calendar sponsor logo. Please consider this in your map design. If you have a preference as to which corner the box should be placed in, please note that at the time of submission.It should be a map (images please, they’ll be printed after all), hi-res JPG or PNG, landscape orientation, 8 inches × 10.5 inches (20.32 cm × 26.67 cm) or proportional. See the sample below.
- While we want your map to be understood, past experience has taught us that lots of detailed explanatory text may not scale well and may be difficult to read when printed in the calendar. Please consider this in your design. We are more than happy to include any such information in the write-up about your map.
- It should be a map you made (potentially with colleagues). Original work only, please.
- You should provide a couple of sentences (up to 75 words) on how it was made (tools, data, techniques, etc.).
- It should be hip!
- Email as attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org. Indicate how you would like to be credited. Twitter handle was the most popular last year.
- Submission deadline: 2019-10-25 T23:59:59+00:00
The GeoHipster advisory board will select the winning entries. Each of the 13 finalist contributors will receive a complimentary calendar.
On the 1st of each month we will publish a mini-interview of that month’s map author, discussing the map in more detail.
