Applicants are not required to be on a project currently funded by ArcticNet.

To enter, interested applicants must submit their poster abstract to the Call for Abstracts. There is a limit of one poster per applicant.

Applicants will be notified if their submission is accepted in late September 2020. A final version of the poster (in JPEG or PNG format) must be submitted by November 15, 2020. Instructions for the final version submission will be sent out later on.

Prizes are available for first, second and third place winners of each category at $600, $400, and $200 CAD respectively.
