Early Career Researcher 2018 Infographic Competition

A competition was held for all ECRs across the CRE sites to develop an infographic to display their research, as it is becoming more common for journals to accept infographics for publication. 


Like last year we had wonderful infographics submitted. Results were very close and resulted in a tie for first position! 


The standard was very high and the submissions are great inspiration for all of us to work to translate our work into accessible formats.

We had two winners who received a prize of $800 to go towards research related activities, and 5 x runners up ($300) prizes. 

A huge congratulations to all winners! Keep an eye out for next year's competition!
