ISPRS Best Poster Award

Terms of Reference

ISPRS Best Poster Award. At the Congress a total of two awards per Technical Commission are sponsored by ISPRS. Each award consists of a certificate and a gift from the Congress Director. A nomination for this award is not possible and not necessary, as all presented posters will be considered for the award.

A jury for each of the ISPRS Commissions, appointed by the respective Technical Commission President, evaluates the poster presentations and selects the two best posters from the Commission based on content and presentation of the posters. The decision of the jury is final. The awards are presented at the Closing Ceremony of the Congress.
