Fall 2017 CON-SNP Infographic Design Competition - Deadline extended to Nov 20, 2017


Infographic Design Competition Guidelines

Topic
Infographics should highlight a topic that is in line with the Canadian Obesity Network’s vision and mission.

What is an infographic?
An infographic is a visual way to display data or information that makes it easy to understand at a glance. It can take the form of a chart, diagram, or illustration, and usually involves minimal text.

Eligibility
This competition is open to all Students and New Professionals (within 5 years of graduating) with one catch: You must be a CON member to enter. Not a member? It’s free and easy to join!

Judges
Initial judging will be done by the CON SNP Executive and then put to a vote by the people of the Internet. Find the bios for all the CON SNP Executives here!

Judging criteria
Judges will grade submissions based on:

  • Design: visual appeal
  • Quality of content: accuracy and validity of data/information presented
  • Knowledge transfer potential: presentation of complex subjects in a easy to understand format
  • Originality: content presented in an innovative format
  • Potential to generate discussion: catchy #hashtag (e.g. #CONInfographic)

Format
Submission format - this is up to you! We prefer either JPEG or PDF but remember, visual design is part of the judging criteria so put those design skills to use! We want something we can share with the world. Or at least those in the CON network. For sizing, try and make possible to share on social - long, skinny ratios don’t work too well.

Submissions
Submissions should be emailed to con.snp@gmail.com by Monday November 20th 2017 by 11:59pm ET. The SNP Executive will select the semi-finalists and public voting through social media will begin at the end of November. Winners will be announced at the beginning of December 2017.

Prizes
First place winner will receive up to $500 travel grant and free registration for the Canadian Obesity Student Meeting (COSM) in London, ON, June 2018 (Other obesity-related conferences will be considered if you are from the London area). Second place - $50 gift card. Third place - $25 gift card. (note: gift cards maybe cineplex, starbucks, etc and are at the discretion of the sponsor.) All semi-finalists will be featured at the COSM .
