The Second Annual GISCI Poster Contest is now open through April 15, 2012.

The GISCI Outreach Committee will choose the top 12 posters.  A panel of preeminent geospatial judges will select the top three winners, and the geospatial public will vote on a People's Choice Award.

Prizes include:
  • First place - $500, Second place - $250, Third place - $100, People’s Choice - $500 and honorable mentions.
  • Each winner will also have their initial certification fee waived if the application is submitted within one year of the date the winners are announced. Current GISPs will have their renewal fees waived at their next recertification date.
  • Map submittal earns / qualifies for 1 point under the Contribution to the Profession category.

All three of last year’s winners have been exhibited at conferences and in poster contests around the country. Two of last year’s winners have been included in the soon-to-be-published Esri Map Book, earning them points for published maps in the Contribution to the Profession section of the GISP application.

A complete set of rules are available here. Maps are to be submitted to postercontest@gisci.org. Maps should be created from the GISP database available on the GISCI website here.    For more information about GISCI and GISP certification, visit www.gisci.org.
