As an attendee at the Annual Conference for People Working in Patient and Health Information, taking place on Wednesday 1st July 2015, you will have the chance to vote in our Best Poster Competition. The best judged poster on the day, as judged by delegates, will win a prize, and be featured on the PiF website and in our weekly e-newsletter – PiF Aware.
What is a Poster?
The purpose of a poster is to outline a piece of work in a form that is easily taken in by the reader and which stimulates interest and discussion. The work presented can be a project, piece of research, evaluation or new information service or resource.
Posters are usually of a set size and large enough to be read easily from a distance of a few feet away. Usually, a poster is made up entirely of a single sheet. These are pinned or attached with velcro strips to a poster board. A short summary of the poster will also be included in the conference delegate pack.
Presenting a poster gives individuals an opportunity to tell their peers about their work, discuss findings and ideas for further work and development.
Posters will be available throughout the conference for delegates to view. Over lunchtime and during breaks presenters will be asked to stand by their poster and be available to answer questions about their work.
- Any individual or organisation can submit a poster for consideration. However, the poster should not be commercial in nature. This is not about promoting a service, or selling something, and posters of this nature will not be considered.
- The poster must be about health information for patients and the public, or a closely related subject area e.g. health literacy.
Please note we are unable to take any further submissions for the Best Poster Competition.
