Call for Posters from PGRs! Enter the Postgraduate Researcher Poster Competition 2023

The Graduate School has launched the call for entries for the 16th Annual PGR Poster Competition, which will be held on campus on Thursday May 25th. Our Poster Competition is open to all doctoral students at UON and is an excellent development opportunity for presenting research, for improving communication and for networking with other doctoral researchers. The Entry Form is here, deadline for entering is April 27th. You have until May 25th to produce and print your A1 landscape poster. There will be Amazon voucher prizes to win – £100 for the winner and 2x £75 for the runners up!

The aim of the event is for PGRs to create a research poster that explains complex research to a mixed audience of non-subject specialists. Your paper poster will be displayed on traditional poster boards in an exhibition in the Owl’s Nest, Learning Hub at Waterside Campus, with an in-person judging session. Entrants must be available from 10am on the day until 2pm.

At whatever stage in the research process you are, do take this opportunity to share your work with others and gain valuable feedback. For further information on the rules of entry, please see the Guidelines.

Sample poster

For those new to producing a research poster, there will be two workshops to help you produce your posters. The first, an in-person workshop, looks at Designing Effective Academic Posters on 4th April and includes a practical poster critique. A webinar on 27th April, offers tips for academic poster presentations. If you need support in academic presentations generally, then we have Dr Adair Richards running a Development Day on 31st March ‘Excellent Academic Presentations‘.
