BSPD National Undergraduate Poster Prize

Value of award: £100

Entry criteria

This competition is open to all dental and dental care professional undergraduate students who are registered as a student at the time of abstract submission. Students are expected to seek guidance of their supervisors/tutors prior to submitting their abstracts. There are governance issues around publishing case reports and clinical governance projects and therefore supervisors’ approval is essential to ensure compliance to the abstract submission guidelines. A letter confirming the head of department’s approval is required to accompany all submissions

Entry details

An abstract of clinical case, clinical governance or research project should be submitted electronically to the BSPD Conference Abstract and Prize Committee by 31 March of the year in which the paper is to be presented. 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 in A0 portrait format (841 mm width by 1189 mm height).

Judging process

Abstracts will initially be appraised by the Conference Abstract and Prize Committee (CAPC) and up to ten entries, which best meet the entry criteria and standards, will be considered for 3 prizes at the annual scientific meeting study day supported by the Society’s Teachers’ Branch. Participants are expected to attend to present their poster during their allocated time. This will be followed by two minutes of questions. The judges will then assess the presentation and also assess the posters separately.
