Ms Cora Chan collects her prize from Prof Hector MacQueen

We are pleased to announce that the joint winners of the 2012 Best Poster Prize, kindly sponsored by Edward Elgar Publishing Ltd, are Rachel Cahill-O'Callaghan (Cardiff) for her poster 'Do Personal Values Tip the Scales of Justice?' and David McArdle (Stirling) for his poster 'Sports Law, Sports Arbitration and the Athlete Biological Passport'. Both used the posters in an effective and visually engaging manner to present interesting and original research projects and it was too difficult to distinguish between them. Many congratulations to them both!

It was, however, a difficult decision and we would like to thank all of the presenters and those who came to view their posters for making this part of the conference such a success. Some of the presenters have reported that their posters attracted the attention of publishers and senior academics working in their field and also led to invitations to contribute to publications and to speak at other universities. We are delighted that the posters have worked so well as an innovative means of disseminating and promoting research.
