To be honest, I wanted to join the competition but I really had no idea what to do for it. I wasn't completely sure what was expected of entries.
The contest was without a doubt a great idea. I'd love to see more short term, themed maps to celebrate whatever it is that's going on.
Chinese New Year version of Greater China?
Nascar redesign of Circus Maximus?
October 3 marks the 20th Anniversary of the Reunification of Germany, Berlin 1961?
June 6th is D-Day...
St. Patricks day is coming up, we could retool Ireland in addition to having a St. paddy's day map.
Too bad we don't have a Mexico map yet, Cinco De Mayo.
I'm sure there's other things to make these short themed maps for and I hope it continues!
