Prizes

 

Poster prize in Addictions Psychiatry for Trainees

We have established a prize for psychiatric trainees, staff grades and associate specialist doctors who present a poster at our annual meeting. We wish to encourage interest in research in addictions.

We will award a prize of £300 for the best poster submission based on originality and relevance to addictions. The costs for the conference fee and travel expenses will be reimbursed to the successful candidate.

Shortlisted candidates are also offered a bursary which covers the conference registration fee, but not travel expenses.

All candidates will be advised approximately six-eight weeks before the meeting and the final prize judging will be made and announced at the meeting. The winner will be expected to provide the full text of their poster presentation for inclusion on our webpage.

Find out how to submit your abstract.

The closing date for 2018 submissions has now passed.

The prize will be presented at our annual meeting, Thursday 26 April and Friday 27 April 2018 in Belfast.
