What program should I use?
Most people use Power Point. However, if you have the knowledge to use other programs like Word, Microsoft Publisher or Adobe Illustrator, you can do it.
Note that in the end you will always have to convert your poster into a PDF file before submitting it.
In either program, use the following measures: Width: 70 cm x Height: 100 cm
Vertical orientation is required
Once the dimensions are selected, you can arrange the elements of the poster using text boxes, inserting images, selecting fonts and colors.
When choosing fonts for your poster, make sure they are easy to read. Do not mix and avoid fonts that are difficult to read.
Arial size 24, being able to use Italics and Bold
When selecting images for your poster, make sure they have a good resolution, ideally 300 dpi. When placing images, pay attention to the relationship between the size and the desired dimensioning. Images with worse resolution should always have a smaller size.
Check the font used for chart legends. Many times the typeface selected does not allow a good reading.
