Avenza Systems Inc., producer of MAPublisher cartographic software, is pleased to announce the winners of the 2004 MAPublisher Map Awards--a competition that showcases the quality and diversity of maps that can be produced with MAPublisher and recognizes and rewards their excellence.

Over 75 individual submissions were received this year including a great many from overseas including some from Iran, Australia and Honduras. The Australian entries proved to be an excellent contingent and won a number of awards this year. The introduction of the new Map Collection category for atlases and maps with a common theme proved to be very exciting and extremely difficult to judge.

A copy of all winning maps and notable entrants for this year's competition will be forwarded to The Map Division of the Library of Congress in Washington, DC to be added to the MAPublisher collection established in 2003.
