You’ve got stories to tell and we’ve created storymaps to help you do it. But maybe you want a little more than just the satisfaction of crafting a great storymap to share with the rest of the world. Well, how does fame, glory and prizes sound to you? Pretty tantalizing, eh? Enter your storymap into the Esri Storytelling Contest and you could have it all.
Now is your chance to let your mapping skills shine! Esri is hosting a storytelling map contest that runs until June 2nd, 2014. Winners will be announced at the International User Conference in San Diego in July. All you need is an ArcGIS Online Organizational or Public Account and some great ideas. You could win a one year ArcGIS Online subscription for five users, a copy of the Smithsonian’s History of America in 101 Objects and/or a year subscription to Smithsonian Magazine.
There are four categories to enter:
- Best Conservation, Environment + Sustainability Story Maps
- Best Travel + Destinations Story Maps
- Best Culture, History + Events Story Maps
- Best Science, Technology + Health Story Maps
Esri has lots of resources to help you on your journey to creating the best storymap ever. There are tips, templates, examples and guidelines to get you started. Show the world the great stories Canadians have to tell.
