The CCA Carto-Quebec Prize is an annual mapping competition for the best cartographic product in French. It recognizes excellence in student map design and production and is open to all post-secondary students who have completed and produced a cartographic project in French during the preceding school year.
The Carto-Quebec Prize consists of two awards of $250, one for entries from college-level or CEGEP students, and one for entries from university-level students.
There are no restrictions on size but the project must have been completed and produced during the school year preceding the competition. Cartographic projects will consist of a map or a map series forming a coherent whole (printed as a single map or a poster displaying several maps) and may be submitted in any ﬁnished form (on paper or other medium).
Each entry must be accompanied by a clear and succinct statement of design objectives that will weigh heavily in the judges’ decision. Entries will be judged on the basis of creativity and overall effectiveness in communication as well as excellence in compilation, design, and layout.
Entries are invited from all Canadian post-secondary students. All entries should be accompanied by an official entry form (Students can either use the online form included below or the digital PDF version). By submitting your entry you are also providing consent that the CCA may post a copy of your map on the CCA website.
The Carto-Quebec Prize entries must be in French.
After you submit the entry form, a member of the CCA will contact you with instructions on how to submit a digital copy of your map.
