In the March 1, 1943 issue of Life Magazine Buckmister Fuller introduced the world to his Dymaxion Map. The Dymaxion Map is the least distorted global map and has the added bonus that it can be transformed easily from a 2D to a 3D map. Check out the original article here.

The contest opened April 22nd and submission deadline is June 14th. So if you are inspired by Buckmister Fuller, domes, or the dymaxion map you have just under a month to get a submission in.
