It gave an opportunity for the presenters to pitch their posters using slides in three minutes to the audience, which was followed by a poster session and discussion evaluation by a panel of judges. The competition was sponsored by MDPI Applied Sciences, awarding first, second and third prizes of €250, €200 and €150 to the top three presenters. The first prize winner also has the opportunity to publish an article for free in the journal, and the second and third prize winners for a 50% discount.
