Santa Map Competition winner!

Santa Map competition winnerBack at the end of October we announced our Santa Map competition, encouraging children under 12 to draw a map of the town, city of country where Santa lives, for the chance to win a prize to visit Santa in Lapland.

We had some amazing (and inventive) entries created on paper, on computer and even in Minecraft game worlds, so it was really difficult to narrow it down to a winner, but there could only be one. The judges finally decided on this amazing, detailed map by India, age 7, from High Wycombe.

We especially liked the correct use of a map legend and north arrow and the inclusion of the Northern Lights.

Here’s some more pictures of some of the entries and the judging team making their decision…

    Great competition & fantastic winning entry. My daughter loved designing her town, I’m sure she will be even more delighted when she realises it features on the runners up board.

      We’ve been extremely pleased with the amazing entries sent in for our Santa Map competition. It’s been great to see all of these budding cartographic talents being put to use in such a creative way.

      Thanks, Gemma
