                Tips for preparing effective posters

                Posters should be eye-catching and attractive and they should not be cluttered with unnecessary information. They should communicate the key messages well. Colour and different type styles should be used judiciously so as not to detract from the content.

                • Content: Posters should have a logical sequence and be understandable by non-experts in the field, with any abbreviations initially explained.
                • Title: The title should be clear.
                • Text: Text should be laid out attractively, with a range of font sizes used. Consider using bullet points, as appropriate. Graphical representation is preferable to large amounts of text.
                • Figures and photographs: These should be of good quality. Figures and tables should have legends that give adequate explanations.
