About

Submit your new ArcGIS StoryMap to win the $5,000 grand prize for a storytelling project in your community and the title of StoryMapper of the Year. Winners will be featured on esri.com and announced by Esri CEO Jack Dangermond on GIS Day(November 13, 2019). Try out the next-generation storytelling tool, ArcGIS StoryMaps. Even if you’ve never made a story map before, we have the tools and resources you need to learn. Take advantage of blog posts and tutorials to help you get started and explore story map galleries for inspiration.

Use ArcGIS StoryMaps to showcase your organization’s plans or projects, educate people about an issue, or fire up the supporters of your nonprofit. Or, it could be a personal story, such as sharing a place you love. The possibilities are endless. So, what’s your story? Show us how you’d use the power of storytelling—and the $5,000 grand prize—to help people in your community. Whether it’s an initiative to support education or help the homeless, we want you to get creative. Four runners-up will also be chosen and will each receive $1,000.

 

Eligibility and Criteria

Show us how you’d use the power of storytelling—and the $5,000 grand prize—to help people in your community. Whether it’s an initiative to support education or help the homeless, we want you to get creative. Four runners-up will also be chosen and will each receive $1,000.

Judging is based on

  • Effectiveness in making story map subject matter interesting and understandable.
  • The story map user experience—is the story engaging? Does it draw the reader in and encourage interaction?
  • The overall design, impact, and originality.
  • Creativity, impact, and feasibility of the storytelling project plan.

The grand prize winner will be determined by the online community, based on which entry gets the most votes or likes. In the event of a tie, Esri staff will decide the final winner.
