The deadline to submit your entry to this years’ Postgraduate Summer Research showcase is fast approaching. Entries in both the image and poster category must be received by Monday, 14th May.
This years’ event will take place on Tuesday 26 June 2018 in the Whitworth Hall and is your chance to showcase your research, and be in with a chance of winning up to £250.
The annual event brings together postgraduate researchers for a celebration of the quality and breadth of research being undertaken by our students across the institution.
It’s a great opportunity for you to network and explore interdisciplinary connections, and offers a supportive environment where you can practise presentation skills and gain valuable feedback from both academic and non-academic judges and visitors.
The categories for this year are as follows:
Posters provide are a great way to express research in new and exciting ways and open up dialogue with a diverse audience – from specialists familiar with the subject area, to people simply curious to know more, a poster can be the starting point for some very insightful conversations.
See poster presentation guidance for more information.
There is a prize of £250 for the best poster from each faculty
By stripping away all the technical language and leaving behind the core question of your research, an image can allow you to highlight your research’s overall impact without having to explain all the technical details.
The broad theme for images is “Research in Action” and you are free to interpret this theme as broadly as you like.
See Image guidance for more information.
There are three prizes in the category:
- Best overall image – £250
- Runner up – £150
- People’s choice winner – £100
