2. Conference Poster

Do you have a poster of which you are rightly proud? Is it all your own work? Did you work as a team? Have other people told you it is rather good? If so, why not enter it for an OxTALENT prize?

What do we mean by ‘Conference Poster’?

Any poster that you have created that presents your research and which has been peer reviewed at a conference or event. Please note: this does not include posters designed to advertise conferences and events.

Why does it have to have been peer reviewed?

We are interested only in the design of the poster, we don’t judge the content. If your poster has been accepted for a conference or event, we can be sure your content is good.

How will it be judged?

The poster will be looked at by a small panel of judges who have experience in poster design and/or a design related area. They will be looking at the following aspects of the poster:
