    Default *** June 2014 Challenge Voting - Finish it ! ***

    This month's challenge was to finish a map and work with some basic material already made. The only constraint was that the contestants couldn't remove elements of the basic map but were allowed to add whatever they want on it. It looks like an inspiring idea for some fellow cartographers that did a great job on this!

    Vote for your favorite map(s) and be generous about repping the contestants. The voting will last for 3 days and the winner will receive the shiniest reward of the web: the golden compass!

    there is no rule about it but it feels wrong to me. It could be a problem in case of a tie otherwise it's fine.

    The way I view these things is more like an election or something, and quite frankly if you don't vote for yourself in an election then why should anyone else? In addition because one has the opportunity to choose multiple candidates you can also vote for other maps you like even when voting for yourself.

    In response to the unfinished look of my map: It most unfortunately is unfinished. Even some of the completed work is not posted, because my work shifts doubled and I missed the deadline. I really enjoyed this challenge though, and I had alot of fun with the map. I hope the other entrants enjoyed the special strictures and limitations as much as I did.

    That's actually a pretty good point.

    Albion by Goombac for its wonderful city icons and the other beautiful touches that elevate the map, though it is a bit loud for my tastes.
    OCD Mountains by Xpian for its OCD mountains duh. And also the details in the insets.

    I would have also gone for Carbus' City of Fingard map because it is wonderful, but felt it fell too far out of the parameters of what I felt the contest was looking for.

    Actually, I was going to wait and see what the custom was, in terms of voting for myself. I jumped in and did it after I saw that it seemed like that was happening... :-)

    Wow! I can't remember a Challenge with so many great entries. I tried to narrow it down to three votes, but couldn't make that last painful cut ... so four it is.

    Great work to all of the challengers!
