Every day people all over the world are composing insightful new story maps. In fact, you might not believe it, but around 1000 new story maps are being created each day. Now’s the time to get your creative mapping juices flowing, make one for yourself, and share it with the world in our Esri Storytelling with Maps Contest.

Everything is fair game—story maps you’ve already created or brand spankin’ new story maps. Use any of the Esri Story Map apps. Feel free to customize the apps too. Entries will be judged on how effectively they make the subject matter interesting, understandable, and engaging.
