After two successful State of the Map online editions, the conference will be again hosted in Italy! In 19, 20 and 21 August SotM 2022 will be held in the city of Firenze, one of the most beautiful cities of Italy.
The face of every event is, of course, its logo; a recognizable graphical element that represents the spirit and mood of that year’s global conference. For this reason, we need the help of the most creative minds in the community to create a new logo for SotM 2022!
The logo is also a crucial element for defining the design and colors of the official website, as well as the style of the conference content on all OSM platforms. It will also be used for the beloved SotM merchandise and swag (t-shirts, stickers, etc), making the best memories from the conference unforgettable.
From experienced professionals to graphic design newbies and enthusiasts, everyone can participate and share an original idea with the community!
The logo design should:
- be an original artwork;
- refer to OpenStreetMap (OSM), and State of the Map (SotM);
- focus on the sense of global community and its core values;
- be easily recognizable;
- open licence: CC BY SA or related
- be submitted by Sunday, 27 February 2022 23:59 UTC

The State of the Map conference is the annual, international conference of OpenStreetMap, organised by the OpenStreetMap Foundation. The OpenStreetMap Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation, formed in the UK to support the OpenStreetMap Project. It is dedicated to encouraging the growth, development and distribution of free geospatial data for anyone to use and share. The OpenStreetMap Foundation owns and maintains the infrastructure of the OpenStreetMap project, and you can support it by becoming a member. The State of the Map Organising Committee is one of our volunteer Working Groups.
OpenStreetMap was founded in 2004 and is an international project to create a free map of the world. To do so, we, thousands of volunteers, collect data about roads, railways, rivers, forests, buildings and a lot more worldwide. Our map data can be downloaded for free by everyone and used for any purpose – including commercial usage. It is possible to produce your own maps which highlight certain features, to calculate routes etc. OpenStreetMap is increasingly used when one needs maps which can be very quickly, or easily, updated.
