2024 PAA Poster Presentation Event

It is time to share your research and take part in the 2024 PAA Poster Presentation Event and Contest. 

PAA has hosted poster presentation events online since 2020. And submissions are now open for the 2024 event! 

Posters will be judged in an online election of PAA members over a one-week period following PAA AGM on 06 September 2024 based on the following criteria:

  • Most of the work has been completed by the psychologist, registered provisional psychologist, or student.
  • The poster demonstrates work that is recognized as a notable contribution to the profession of psychology.
  • The poster will be evaluated for both the content (i.e., originality, focus, relevance to the profession of psychology, etc.) as well as for the design qualities of the poster (i.e., readability, appeal, graphics, etc.)
  • Submission can be done via email to PAA CPD Officer Ada. The deadline is 15 July 2024

There is a $250.00 award for the 2024 PAA Best Poster Presentation. The psychologist, registered provisional psychologist, or student who is the primary author of the poster will receive the monetary award and an invitation to the PAA Gala (September 2024 – Calgary). This award can be shared by multiple psychologists, registered provisional psychologists, or students, in the title.
