UPON THE INITIATIVE OF PARTNERS ORGANISED BY
VOTE FOR YOUR FAVOURITE ILLUSTRATION – AND WIN

In its Illustration Challenge "Traces of Humankind", GEO is looking for illustrations that reveal and illustrate humankind's footprint on our planet – including all manner of effects produced by both current and long past developments – in vivid, artistic ways using satellite images. Based on informative content and artistic design, a jury has selected 20 finalists from the almost 70 entries submitted in the GEO Illustration Challenge.

Now it’s your turn. Vote for your favourite illustration from 15 July to 18 August 2013 to gain your own chance to win. All registered voters will enter a prize drawing for a free one-year subscription to GEO magazine (in the language of your choice, pending availability).

You can rate all the illustrations according to their informative content and the aesthetic value of their artistic design on a scale of one to five (five being the best). Please note that you can rate all the illustrations but only vote once for each illustration.

The winning image will be announced at the Copernicus Masters awards ceremony on 5 November and published in GEO magazine.
