There were lots of amazing map submissions this year, but there are only so many months in a year! Find out which maps made it to the calendar.
Thank you to all who participated in our annual Map Calendar contest. We debated on whether to host it during the pandemic, but we’re pleased that we pushed through with it.
We received many beautiful map submissions and picked 14 for the 2021 calendar.
Ranging from different topics, each map was selected for its visual appeal and effective use of cartography to tell a story.
