Ken Field, The Cartographic Journal Editor, presented the award.


Dr Alexander Kent and Professor Peter Vujakovic, Canterbury Christ Church University.
Stylistic Diversity in European 1 : 50 000 State Topographic Maps

The paper featured in Volume 46, Issue Number 2 and reported some of the findings from Alex’s excellent PhD thesis (which, incidentally won the BCS National Geographic New Map Maker award in 2007). The paper is of a consistent high quality and a terrific example of contemporary cartographic research. It is well-researched in scientific terms, very well reported and beautifully illustrated. It is a challenge to edit and tease out a paper from a PhD thesis that stretches to 100,000 words but Alex has crafted an excellent study that the adjudicators were unanimous in selecting as their choice for the Volume 46 award.
Both Dr Alexander Kent and Professor Peter Vujakovic, received the award from Mr. Ken Field, The Cartographic Journal Editor (centre).
