Terms of the Award

The seventh biennial Imago Mundi Prize will be awarded in 2017 to honour the Imago Mundi article judged to have made the most significant contribution to the discipline.

The judges will consider articles published in the 2015 and 2016 issues (volumes 67 and 68). The winner will receive $1000 and will automatically qualify for a J.B. Harley Travel Award to the subsequent International Conference on the History of Cartography (Belo Horizonte, 2017). The winner will also receive a certificate, which, if he or she is able to attend, will be presented at the conference.

Full length articles will be eligible for the Prize, but not shorter articles, since only full length articles are automatically subject to the (anonymous) external refereeing process before acceptance for publication. Directors of Imago Mundi Ltd (who take it in turns to serve on the panel of judges) are not eligible for consideration.

The Imago Mundi Prize is generously sponsored by Kenneth Nebenzahl.

The Prize will be awarded for the first time in 2005 for the best article to have been published in the 2003 and 2004 issues (volume 55 and the two-part volume 56). The winner will receive $1000 and will automatically qualify for a J.B. Harley Travel Award to the next International Conference on the History of Cartography (Budapest, July 2005). The winner will also receive a certificate, which, if they are able to attend, will be presented to them at the conference.

His fellow Directors wish to give warm thanks to Kenneth Nebenzahl for his generous sponsorship of this Prize.
