Combining visual and written communication skills

The Faculty of Graduate Studies and Graduate Students' Association are excited to provide you with an opportunity to undergo a transformative experience; exploring new ways of thinking about your research, its value, and how it can be presented to an audience outside of your research domain. It is also a great opportunity to win cash prizes and have your research presented to a wider community

The competition is judged by a panel drawn from FGS and GSA leadership, staff and members of the community.

Each entry must be accompanied with two abstracts:

  • A technical abstract explaining how the image relates to the research
  • A non-technical abstract written for a general audience

Entries are judged on composition, quality, how effectively the images connect with research, and on the quality of the written abstracts. To help you with your entry, you will be added to a D2L course with access to workshops, feedback sessions and written resources.

Please check back in December 2021 for details of the 2022 competition!
