Infographic competition 

Infographics provide an excellent platform to showcase regional anaesthesia or perioperative ultrasound concepts in an efficient, easy to interpret, creative, and colourful way.  In a world where we can be easily overwhelmed with data and complex information, infographics provide visual information in a way that is easily understood and retained.  Presenting information in this manner is crucial for the future of education in regional anaesthesia and perioperative ultrasound.

How to take part in the RA-UK infographic competition 

  • Select a topic related to regional anaesthesia, pain medicine or perioperative ultrasound. Be imaginative!

  • Think about how you can present this information in a visual format.

  • Design your infographic.  

  • Your infographic should be aesthetically pleasing, eye-catching, and contain as few words as possible.  The following websites may offer useful tools and tips:

  • When selecting images, ensure that they are properly cited (must be creative commons, public domain, or taken/designed/drawn personally).

  • Infographics must be your own original work.

  • Submit your original infographic in PDF or JPEG format via the submit button on this page by midnight on Friday 9th April, 2021.

  • Please note that Infographics are non interactive and will be displayed on a large plasma screen. 

Judging criteria for infographics 

  • Creative use of graphics and overall visual appeal

  • Relevance of information
