POLIS Academic Poster Competition

last modified Apr 29, 2016 01:47 PM

We are delighted to announce the Poster Competition, open to all PhD students in POLIS.

Academic posters are a great way to disseminate your research and to promote your work at conferences. A good academic poster will capture attention, explain your ideas and open further discussions. Entering the competition will give you valuable experience in presenting your research to your peers. All entrants will receive individual feedback from our team of judges and the winning poster will win a prize.

Dates for your diaries

  • 10th June - Deadline for the initial submission of your first draft. 
  • 10th July - Feedback from POLIS academic judging team will be given to all entrants. This feedback can be used to improve the poster before the final deadline, or before you take it to conference with you. 
  • 10th September - Deadline for final poster submission.
  • October - Induction Day. The top posters (chosen by the panel of judges) will be printed and displayed in the Alison Richard Building. PhD students, postdocs and academics will be invited to vote for the overall winner who will receive a prize of £100. 

The competition is open to all POLIS PhD students and the winning poster will win a prize of £100.

Full details, guidance, examples and resources for creating an academic poster can be found on the Poster Competition Moodle site.
