Tips for uploading a poster

  • Please ensure only high resolution, high quality images are submitted
  • Image files should be in .JPG, .PDF or .PNG formats
  • Uploaded files are limited to 20MB
  • Original posters can either be scanned or photographed
  • Remember if taking a photo, please ensure a clear, non-blurred image is taken. Think about:
    • good lighting
    • ensuring the poster fills the entire screen, an overhead shot is often best as you are standing above the poster, looking down
    • avoiding flash, as if a glossy poster, you will get glare


Winners will be chosen by:

  • how well does the poster communicate the National Water Week poster competition theme, ‘Water for all, inspiring action' and/or relevant water-related issues
  • how attractive does it look from a distance
  • have art materials been used effectively
  • does the poster use innovative imagery, design or concepts
