The Medical Teacher Poster Prize is awarded annually at AMEE Conferences for the best poster, as judged by a Committee against published criteria.
The top three posters will be announced at the end of the closing plenary at the AMEE Conference.
The aim of the prize is to select examples of good practice in preparing posters. During the conference, a rosette will be attached to the board of the top 3 posters selected by the committee for the short list from which the winner will be selected and announced at the AMEE Conference closing plenary. Participants can therefore see the posters that, in the opinion of the Committee, best reflect the aspects of a good poster.
The winner will receive free AMEE Conference registration, or a cash prize of £350.
For hints on preparing posters and the criteria for judging posters please download Information for Poster Presenters or alternatively you can purchase a copy of AMEE Guide No 40 - 'Creating effective poster presentations' produced by George Hess, Kathryn Tosney, Leon Liegel. This AMEE Guide provides guidance and is illustrated with annotated examples.
