Entry criteria: this competition is open to BSPD members and seeks entries from non-consultant grade (or equivalent) clinicians. If you are not already a member of the Society, you can join at the same time as submiiting your abstract.
Entry details: An abstract should be submitted electronically to the BSPD Conference Abstract and Prize Committee (CAPC) by 31 March in the year of the conference in which the paper is to be presented. Details will be made available via the conference website. Abstracts should adhere to the format required for conference abstracts as described in the submission process.
Poster preparation: Posters will be displayed on a standard display board and should be A0 portrait (841 mm width by 1189 mm height).
Judging process: Abstracts will initially be appraised by the CAPC and up to six entries, which best meet the entry criteria and standards, will be considered for a prize at the annual scientific meeting (see appendix E for mark sheet). Participants will give a 3-minute oral presentation, using a maximum of three slides at the annual scientific meeting. This will be followed by two minutes of questions. The judges will assess this and also assess the posters separately. Presenters and posters will be assessed according to standard. The winner will be announced at the conference dinner. Applicants who are not selected for this prize will be invited to present their paper in the non-prize poster category at the conference.
