Designing your poster

The NHS Scotland Event 2022 poster exhibition will combine both our traditional A0 poster display with the addition of an online poster showcase.

For full details and guidance on designing your poster, please download a copy of the Poster Design Guide below.

Last year’s Event ran as a virtual event and the Learning Toolbox platform was used to create the online poster showcase.

We’re delighted to be using the Learning Toolbox again for this year’s Event. This will allow poster authors to add supporting material to supplement their poster.

Successful poster authors will be required to:

  • Create, print and display an A0 portrait poster;
  • Upload their pdf poster to the Learning Toolbox platform; and
  • Add additional resources (optional) to Learning Toolbox to support their poster e.g. images, videos, audio, documents, apps and links to social media and online resources.

Minimum requirement: Each poster author must create a poster based on the original abstract submission and print an A0 version of the poster for display at the NHS Scotland Event on both days.

Supporting content: There is also an option to include many different resources including images, videos, audio, documents, apps and links to social media and online resources.

Please note that judging for the poster awards, in all categories, will be solely based on the quality of the poster content. The judges will not take into account any supplementary material during the judging process.

Using the Learning Toolbox

Please note that a comprehensive set of guidelines on how to use the Learning Toolbox will be emailed to all poster authors at the start of the poster design stage.

The Poster Lead from the Events Team will also be on hand throughout the process to answer any queries in relation to poster design. The Poster Lead for 2022 is Donna Connolly
