The Poster of the Year Award was first presented in 2000 and provides an avenue for presentation of information on initial findings of work that has been commenced, as well as work from completed projects. The Award affords a unique opportunity for authors wanting to share their knowledge or experiences through the medium of display posters at the Conference. Posters are marked by the Technical Committee.
Each eligible poster is marked against following five criteria:
- Technical Content
- Practical Content
- Future Use
- Clarity and Logic
- Poster Author response to questions (Scored Zero if Author not in attendance)
Entries are welcome on any topic of relevance to the water industry, with entries from students particularly encouraged.
The deadline for poster summaries for the 2020 award is Friday, 14 August and entries must be submitted through the portal held on the Water New Zealand Conference website.
The winner will receive a cash prize.
