Poster showcase


Help shape Social Work Week 2021

As the first week of its kind in England, Social Work Week 2021 will bring people together to learn, connect, and engage on the values and principles which form the backbone of effective social work practice. It will create a space for us to collectively reflect and consider how we can enable change.

The week is a chance to take part in a virtual programme of positive activity, co-produced with the sector to examine the growing value that social work as a regulated profession adds to society.

The online workshops, presentations and speaker slots for Social Work Week 2021 have now been filled, but we’re still looking for contributors to the poster showcase.


What we're looking for

The way we live has changed. This past year has had a significant impact on our lives, challenging us as we navigate this new way of living.

We’re now inviting submissions for the poster showcase. We’re encouraging poster submissions from anyone with an interest in social work, including:

  • Social workers
  • Students on social work courses
  • Social work education and training providers
  • People with lived experience of social work
  • Social work employers and organisations

Posters should reflect on your own creative vision for this new world of social work. Posters must also focus on at least 1 of the Social Work Week 2021 themes:

  • Understanding your regulator
  • Social work and you: living the professional standards
  • Equality, diversity, and inclusion: social work perspectives
  • What’s next for social work?

It is very important that posters are accessible to everyone. Please bear this in mind when submitting your poster.

If your poster is successful, it will be published on our website for Social Work Week 2021.

How to submit a poster

If you want to submit a poster to be considered by the panel for Social Work Week 2021, please send the following to [email protected] by 5pm on 28 January 2021:

Please note, if successful, you will be asked whether you would like to be part of the poster competition. The competition will run during Social Work Week 2021 and will allow participants to vote for the 3 best posters.

We will let you know from 8 February if your poster has been successful.

Poster details

The poster must be:

  • High resolution
  • In PDF format, using a tool of your choice (you could use PowerPoint, Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign, or any other digital tool)
  • Easy to understand, for example when using charts and graphs

To design the content of the poster, you must use:

  • accessible colours (for example do not layer white text over a yellow background)
  • high resolution pictures (if including)

You must also send a transcript of the poster. The transcript should include all text on the poster and descriptions of any pictures, tables, or graphs. This is so we can produce a HTML version of your poster for the website.
