BogFest: Call for Posters

We are looking for projects and researchers to share their inspiring and informative posters with BogFest delegates from multiple sectors including academia, government, land management and third sector.

Poster slots will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. Email IUCN UK Peatland Programme (info@iucn.org.uk) with your title and abstract to reserve your space.

Poster Specification:

Size: A1 (594 mm x 841 mm)

Orientation: Portrait

Abstract: Max. 300 words (deadline: 31st August)

Posters should either be sent to the Moorland Centre (Fieldhead, Edale, Hope Valley, S33 0AH) for the attention of Rebecca Cassidy in the week prior to BogFest or presented to a member of the IUCN UK Peatland Programme team on the first morning (Thursday 21st September prior to 12 noon) for display. Poster fixings will be provided.

Dedicated poster viewings are planned on Thursday 21st and Friday 22nd September – please ensure that someone from your team is available to stand with the poster during this session should anyone have questions. Exact timings will be confirmed nearer the time.

Posters will be displayed for the duration of the festival.

BogFest is a joint Moors for the Future Partnership and IUCN UK Peatland Programme conference, hosted by the MoorLIFE2020 project, which is funded by EU LIFE and co-financed by Severn Trent Water, Yorkshire Water and United Utilities.
