PAOC Poster competition

Thanks to everybodyfor submitting your posters for evaluation. The Scientific Committee members ranked your posters independently and then we averaged the scores. The top 5 will be sponsored by APLORI to attend the PAOC. The results for the top 7 were:
1.       Hope
2.       Crossby
3.       Bakam
4.       Ojay
5.       Fidel
6.       Stella
7.       Dayo
Hope has his own funding so our final list of people that we will financially support for the PAOC is:
Crossby
Bakam
Ojay
Fidel
Stella
Well done to everyone who made the list. Well done to everyone who submitted posters – they were all of an excellent standard. Two posters were not primarily on birds so scored lower than reflected their quality as posters: we can’t change the fact that the PAOC is an ornithological conference!
We will use everybody’s posters at the PAOC subject to maybe a bit of tweaking – we will get back with specific suggestions for improvements on a one to one basis.
