Poster Sessions

The Alaska Forum on the Environment is happy to announce that we will again support a showcase of Project Posters this year!

We invite interested agencies, Tribal governments, organizations, researchers, as well as individual participants to submit their projects to be displayed at the Alaska Forum on the Environment. Projects should be current, applicable to the Alaska Forum on the Environment and may utilize photographs, literature, and summary information (no "props" please) on a poster board. Suggested topics include: community recycling projects, innovative clean up projects, invasive species, climate change research, emergency response, environmental regulations, fish and wildlife populations, rural issues, energy, military issues, pollution prevention and contaminants. 

Agencies or organizations submitting a Poster Session project must provide a written description to the project in the attached submission form. A location will be identified for your poster project to be displayed throughout the week.

AFE must receive your project idea submission by close of business, January 22, 2018 in order for it to be reviewed. We will be accepting up to 20 submissions this year. To apply, please complete the online submission form and press submit.

Selection Process

The AFE seeks any combination of inventive, incisive, innovative work that compliments the event. Submissions should be high-quality projects worthy of placement for public display. All entries must be reviewed for eligibility. Each work is judged solely on its own merits for originality, quality, content and adherence to conference themes.


Poster projects selected for displays will be notified no later than January 31, 2018.

Poster Display Details and Timeframe

Poster session projects must be dropped off at the Registration desk at the Dena'ina Convention Center, either on Sunday afternoon between 2-4 PM, or on Monday morning between 7–11 AM. Posters will be set up by AFE volunteer staff by Monday afternoon. All poster projects can be displayed through 12 Noon on Thursday, February 15, 2018. All Poster Session submissions must be mounted on provided displays. AFE Staff will be available to help place Velcro or clipping posters with a device to attach it to each display. This should not compromise the quality of the poster. We ask that conference participants not plan floor displays or use facility walls rather than the display panels.


Alaska Forum is not responsible for Poster session materials left beyond Friday, February 16 at 12:00 PM. Any materials left beyond that time will likely be recycled or disposed of by building personnel. AFE organizers, employees, sponsors, nor participating individuals or organizations can not assume responsibility for damage to or loss of submitted materials.
