An annual poster contest is sponsored by ECOLAB and supported by an IPAC Canada chapter to give infection prevention and control professionals an opportunity to put their creative talents to work by developing a poster that visualizes the Infection Prevention and Control Week theme. The 2021 National Infection Control Week is October 18-22.

(View this information in pdf format).

THEME: Infection Prevention and Control: Unite and Conquer!

DESCRIPTION OF THEME: The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on the lives of millions around the world, forcing us to adapt to the “new normal”. We have been left with the incredible task to UNITE AND CONQUER this pandemic. Healthcare workers have been doing an outstanding job working around the clock to ensure people affected by the virus are supported and society is doing their best to try to “flatten the curve”. We can accomplish anything if we UNITE AND CONQUER!

PRIZE: The winner will receive a waived registration to the 2021 Virtual National Conference (May 3-5, 2021).

REMINDER: Posters should have meaning for the public as well as all levels of staff across the continuum of care. The poster should be simple and uncluttered, with strong visual attraction and minimal text. Judging will be based on overall content. Artistic talent is helpful but not necessary. The winning entry will be submitted to a graphic designer for final production. Your entry will become the property of IPAC Canada.
