Jerôme H. Remick Poster Awards

The purpose of the Remick Poster Awards is to acknowledge the growing use of posters as a legitimate geoscience communication vehicle, and to encourage higher standards by recognizing the best posters at any given meeting. The specific guidelines for making the poster awards will be the purview of the GAC® Program Committee, and these will be periodically reviewed and updated as necessary to reflect evolving presentation techniques.

The current prize value for the awards is: Gold – $1000, Silver – $900, Bronze – $800.
