Congratulations to Sinead for winning 1st place in the PGR category, Fazya for being runner up in the PGR category and Yogesh for being runner up in the PGT category in the Queen's University Belfast Athena SWAN poster competition.
Students across the University where asked students to design a poster to showcase a woman who inspired them.
The competition had a significant number of entries and the judging panel were very impressed with the standard of entries:
There were lots of fantastic entries reflective of women across the county globe, some in the public eye and those closer to home. It was a wonderful and poignant reminder that inspirational women can be found everywhere. The judges’ choice of winners and runners-up exhibited strong compositions, were extremely well executed, and presented in unique styles. Thank you to everyone for taking part and getting involved and showcasing such diverse and incredible women.
