The British Science Association are running a new poster competition for engineers called Strictly Engineering
Engineers have the opportunity to be mentored by professional graphic designers and public engagement specialists through a one day workshop designed to develop their verbal and visual communication skills and a three day all expenses paid trip to the British Science Festival in Aberdeen to display their poster as part of a special exhibition.
The exhibition will celebrate the contributions made by the diverse engineering community, explore the role of engineering in our everyday lives and challenge engineering stereotypes and there are prizes for the best posters voted for by the public.
We welcome applicants from any engineering discipline across the UK and at any stage of their career in academia or industry.
More information can be found at http://www.britishscienceassociation.org/strictlyengineering and we also have a flyer.
