Announcing Place of the Year 2015 longlist: vote for your pick

Today we officially launch our efforts to decide on what the Place of the Year 2015 should be, coinciding with the publication of the Atlas of the World, 22nd edition–the only atlas that’s updated annually to reflect current events and politics.

We asked our colleagues at Oxford University Press for their help, and they all came back with both interesting and significant nominations. So now we open up the question to you: What do you think is 2015’s Place of the Year? Vote in the poll below by 31 October. Or, if you think there’s a place we missed, let us know in the comments.


Keep checking back on the OUPblog, or follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr for regular updates and content on our Place of the Year 2015 contenders.
