130 KiG 2011, 16Conferences and Exhibitions Croatia at the International Children's Map Exhibition in Paris, 2011 Paris, 3-8 July 2011 At the International Children's Map Exhibition held this year on the topic of Life in a globalized world, as part of the 25th International Cartographic Confer- ence organized by the International Car- tographic Association (ICA) from 3-8 July 2011, in Paris, 186 children's drawings from 31 countries, including 6 drawings from Croatia, were exhibited. The Barbara Petchenik awards for children's maps were initiated by the ICA in 1993, in memory of Barbara Petchenik, Vice-President of the Association and a cartographer who dedicated her working life to maps and children. The awards are presented every two years during the international cartographic conference, ideally one for every continent, with special attention paid to the age of the child who produced the drawing. So far, Croatia has participated successfully in exhibitions in Barcelona in 1995, Stockholm in 1997, Ottawa in 1999, Beijing in 2001, Durban in 2003, A Coruna in 2005, Moscow in 2007 and Santiago in 2009. The drawing Once is not enough – recycle by Marinko Cirkvenčić, exhibited in Barcelona, was included in the UNICEF poster Children Draw the World, and Compass Card by Anita Matković, exhibited in Stockholm, was one of the winners.

Morrison, translated by D. Tutić and M. Lapaine), published by the State Geodetic Administration in Zagreb in 2001.
