Postgraduate Poster Competition, May 2007
Congratulations to MOAC's James Lister Sinfield who won the University's annual postgraduate poster competition held in May 2007.
James (2nd year PhD) convinced a panel of judges that his poster was worthy of their vote, and won first place at the competition plus prize money of £1000. This was his first attempt at the University's annual event, and he explained:
Although I've never entered a poster competition before I have made a number of posters. On one occasion I made one in a hurry and presented it down at Imperial College. Although it looked okay - there must have been around 30 spelling mistakes in it, I was mortified.
Managing to keep the typo count down to only three for his winning entry, James believes the key to his win was down to more than his poster's fine detail, admitting:
I don't think it was the best poster there.
On the day I discovered that the marking was 50% for the poster and 50% for communication of the science. I think that it was the ability to react to the questions of the judges that won me the competition.
Needless to say I was delighted to win. The prize is very welcome, but perhaps more importantly it has given me the an enormous amount of motivation and confidence with respect to communicating science.
Congratulations also to MOAC students Antony Holmes and Mike Li whose posters were picked in the top ten and have progressed to the regional competition, which will take place in July. The full 2007 winners list is online.
