Student Competitions

Student Poster Competition

We are offering the opportunity for students to showcase their own project work in the student poster competition.   This competition requires entrants to summarise their technical, research or production based project in the form of an A1 size poster. Projects must be individual, rather than group based projects.


There are 3 categories of entry:

  1. Further Education projects – open to any students on an FE course (may be either a technical or a creative project)
  2. Higher education (Technical) projects – open to undergraduate students whose project focuses on technical development or scientific research in audio.
  3. Higher education (Creative) projects – open to undergraduate students whose project focuses on creative practice or creative research in audio.


Please bring your printed poster to the event and present this at registration. You will be directed to where these will be displayed. The poster should be A1 sized in Portrait format, printed on a single sheet of paper. Do not print using A4 sheets and stick together. The poster should be prepared using graphics/publishing software and printed. Hand drawn posters are NOT acceptable. The poster header should contain your name, poster title, institution of study.

Please see this document for some guidance on academic posters. Academic Posters – a brief guide
