AMEE E-Poster Prize, 2019

Background: E-posters are rapidly becoming a valuable mode of information delivery at academic conferences.  AMEE has been one of the innovators in having e-posters at its annual conferences.   From 2019, AMEE is introducing an e-poster prize.   

Eligibility for the Prize:  To be eligible for the prize:

The e-poster must have been created for the AMEE2019 Conference or the TEL2019 Symposium.

At least one author listed on the poster must be registered and physically present at the AMEE2019 Conference and/or the TEL2019 Symposium.

Aim:  The aim of the prize is to select examples of good practice in preparing e-posters, especially demonstrating how the technology adds value to the e-poster.

Judging:  Members of the TEL Committee who have submitted e-posters may not be among the judges.

Judging of the e-posters will proceed as follows:

From 1 August 2019, judges from the TEL Committee will begin accessing the e-posters online.  This means that, if you are aiming for the prize, you need to have your e-poster as complete as possible by 1 August 2019.  (You may make changes after that date, but those changes might not be taken into account by the judges.)

Each judge will independently draw up a short list of 10 posters based on the stipulated criteria.

Before or during the conference, the judges will meet, and will reach a consensus of the top five posters.  

In the event of uncertainty, judges may attend the presentations in order to assist in their final decisions.

At the end of the presentations, the judges will meet again.  Based upon the final score, the winner will be established.

The winner will be announced at the AMEE2019 final plenary session.

Prize:  The winner will receive one free AMEE Conference registration, or a cash prize of £350.

E-Poster design:  It is crucial to note that a good e-poster is not simply a paper poster in pdf format, and authors should ensure that their e-poster demonstrates the value of the technology.  As a guideline, authors are encouraged to:

Read How to make an effective e-poster. (Note: This is a generic guide to e-poster design, and not all items will be applicable to the e-poster software currently used by AMEE);
