Gotta go with 6.
It is unique style that we don't have on CC, simplistic and very professional exectued. Only downfalls are the colour used for Bouganville and the Southern Highlands appears the same; the fourway border, and missing bridge.
2 on the other hand is very good also, but a little overly fussy for PNG, there is one line on Karkar that doesn't meet up but should, and I'm not too sure about the artwork being in appropariate style for PNG.
But i still prefer #6
Just my two cents worth. :)

Appropriate style for PNG? What do you mean?

There's no "appropriate style for PNG". PNG can be whatever you want.

I mean it's just a file format. It's not like there's some limitations what kind of graphics you can or can't display on a PNG file.

PNG in this context means Papua New Guinea.

No 6 is the most original, and has been done very well. Sure it could do with a little tweaking, but all contest maps have needed something extra! No 6 gets my vote.

The borders of Balimo on Entry #6 seem to be wrong, but I guess that can be easily changed if it gets past the voting stage (:

I've always liked topo models, so #6 is far away my favorite. The only change I'd suggest would be to make the continent bonus indicators overlap at least 2 territories.

I've changed my vote from #5 to #6 (which was always my second choice) simply because I'd rather #6 win than #2 (also an attractive map don't get me wrong) Obviously I don't know who made any of these so it's nothing personal, but we have plenty of maps that look like #2 and none that look like #6. It's time for some new looks I say!

Agreed here. I like both #6 and #2, but #6 wins out for me based on originality.

I will say this... if #2 wins, I hope that whomever did #6 tries to apply the same sort of style/scheme to a different geographic region in the world. It's a very attractive map and I hope to see it something like it on the site soon.

Wow this seems to be a reasonably close competition. Should the final result remain close I may have to run second round poll between our two front runners!
