The Cartography Specialty Group of the American Association of Geographers is pleased to announce that we are now accepting submissions for the 2020 Student Guided Poster Competition, formerly known as the Student Illustrated Paper Competition. This is an opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to attend the AAG Annual Meeting and demonstrate their excellence in both scholarly research and cartographic design. Our panel of judges will select students to receive scholarships of $300 (1st place), $200 (2nd place), and $100 (3rd place).
Participants will be judged on their ability to:
1) Perform scholarly research (this could include identification of a meaningful research statement and execution of appropriate methods/analysis)
2) Produce a map which meets its intended purpose and demonstrates a good understanding of cartographic principals and design
3) Communicate a well-formulated narrative to a broad audience (both verbally and through visuals) Please note that while posters may include co-authors, awards will be presented to a single applicant.
4) For 2020, special consideration will be given to submissions that reflect one or more of the official AAG2020 themes, although not required for acceptance.
Guided Poster Competition
In a guided poster session, each participant displays a printed research poster in addition to participating in a "lightning round" of oral presentations. More specifically, at the beginning of the session, each participant will, in turn, deliver a short (3-5 minute) presentation outlining their project using their poster for visual reference. Once all participants have presented, posters are left exhibited for informal browsing and discussion. Each presenter will be provided a 4' tall x 8' wide board on which to display their poster. Because this session format does not provide AV equipment, those wishing to present projects using web-based maps may, in addition to their poster, show their work using personal devices. For more information on the Guided Poster format, please visit the AAG session type page.
1.) A completed participant online application form.
2.) A brief letter of support submitted online on your behalf written by an advisor or project manager.
Both forms may also be accessed from the CSG website: aagcartography.wordpress.com
Please submit all materials by November 8, 2020. Participants will receive an email confirming the receipt of their application. Criteria 1 and 3 (above) will be used to evaluate all initial submissions and select up to 12 participants as competition finalists. Finalists will be invited to participate in the CSG Student Guided Poster Competition session during the 2020 AAG Annual Meeting. Unless otherwise requested, non-finalist participants may be organized into additional sessions hosted by the CSG. Participants will be notified of their session assignment by November 16.
