The finalists were selected for their exceptional execution of the contest's criteria:

  1. Original. Is the map innovative in some fashion? Does it challenge traditional perspectives?
  2. Aesthetic. Is the map beautiful? Intriguing? Inspiring?
  3. Informative. Does the map convey information, worthwhile themes or sets of data to its viewer?

In the coming weeks, the Buckminster Fuller Institute will announce both the winner (selected by BFI) and 3 critic pics as selected by guest critics: graphic designer Nicholas Felton, artist Mary Mattingly and Dymaxion Map cartographer and Bucky's close friend and associate, Shoji Sadao. The winner will have their design produced as a full size poster and offered within the BFI store. All 11 finalists will be printed at full scale for an in-person exhibition this fall in New York City (details TBA).
