WST March Poster Exhibition – deadline extended

Submit a poster and be in with a chance to win a prize!

We are thrilled to be holding our poster exhibition in person again during WST ‘Celebrating Us’ on March 23.  Aside from coming along on the day and hearing our fantastic keynote speakers, supporting your colleagues at their presentations and attending the People First panel, you can also get involved by submitting a poster for the exhibition and maybe even win a prize.

How do I enter my poster for the prizes?

This year at WST all poster submissions will be automatically entered into the poster competition. There will be two prizes, one based on a public vote and the second is the judges award.

During the event all submitted posters will be on display on the balcony of The Village.  They’ll be on display for attendees to view (and vote on!) during the day. During the networking lunch, the judging panel will be viewing the posters and talking to the entrants to help decide on the judges award.

The Public Vote: On the 23 March all WST attendees will be asked to vote for their favorite posters, the entry with the most votes will be the winner of the public vote.

The Judges Vote: The WST panel of judges will judge the posters on:

  • How well key messages are presented
  • Creativity
  • Collaboration
  • Celebration
  • Innovation
  • Build on past successes
  • Shaping the future
  • Originality

Why should I get involved?

WST 2023 offers a platform for you to share your story with colleagues and inspire others to build on your experience.  It’s a great way to translate your story into key information and use it as a long term record or guide.

I have never developed a poster before…

– What should I submit?

We have a broad theme for WST 2023: ‘Celebrating Us’.  A great way to generate ideas is to think about these pointers:

• What are you doing that you think would be great to share?
• What great ideas did you come up with to address challenges you faced over the last year?
• Have you found a new way of doing something?
• What have you learned that will influence what you/we do in the future?

Another great way to get an idea in shape is to talk to the people you work with – your colleagues, your line manager. They may jog your memory about an idea or change or even recommend you submit something you didn’t realise was so impactful.

– How do I submit?

We find that keeping it simple is the best approach. Using the templates we provide using powerpoint makes the technical side a bit easier. You can use the portrait or landscape templates here

  • All posters should be A1 (594 x 841 mm)
  • Portrait or Landscape
  •  include the Work Smarter Together logo provided by UCD Agile. Branding  and the UCD crest available here.  
  • The title of your poster and contributor details (name, email address, phone extension) should be included.  

Upload your poster to the Poster Final folder by the deadline to be in with a chance to win

The deadline for all poster submissions is March 10 by 5pm
