This year’s event was held online, where it has attracted significant attention from across the University and beyond. 

Over 140 initial expressions of interest from postgraduate researchers were followed by the submission of 90 abstracts.  These were narrowed down by our ten abstract judges to the final 25. 

The online exhibition was visited 1800 times, with an incredible 1500 visitors voting for their favourite poster in the ‘popular vote’ category. 

Congratulations not just to the winners, but also everyone that took part. As always, the poster competition was a wonderful showcase for the work that our postgraduate researchers are doing.

Each of the 25 finalists’ entries can still be viewed online.
