(Please click here for a copy of the instructions as a pdf.)

This is an advert inviting submissions of Interesting Cases and Poster Presentations at the 2021 BSGAR Virtual Annual Meeting.

Interesting Cases Session and Derrick Martin Prize
The session is one of the annual highlights of the BSGAR meeting, and is usually heavily oversubscribed. The quality of submissions and presentations has always fantastic, and in 2021 we expect the Derrick Martin Prize to be as hotly contested as ever!

For 2021, we are changing the submission requirements to make it more straightforward to submit cases. Please submit as a PowerPoint presentation using the following format:

•    Slide 1: Cover slide – case title, authors and affiliations
•    Slide 2: Text slide – case synopsis and final diagnosis (250 words maximum)
•    Slide 3: Figures slide – up to 4 annotated images

The best 10 cases submitted will be invited to present at the Annual Meeting on Friday 5th February 2021 and offered publication on the BSGAR website. Accepted case authors will be asked to produce a 4-minute presentation, which will be prerecorded ahead of the meeting (full details will be provided after acceptance).

The Derrick Martin Prize will be awarded for the best interesting case presented by a trainee. The winner will receive a prize of £200 in John Lewis vouchers. The Interesting Cases Session is also open to Consultants, but they are not eligible for the Derrick Martin Prize.

e-Poster Presentations and Prizes
We were delighted with the feedback we received on the poster presentations and scientific session in 2019 and 2020, and so will continue these into 2021.

•    We will accept abstract submissions from both Consultants and trainees, although Consultants are not eligible for the prizes. These might be audit and quality improvement pro-jects, education projects, technical developments, scientific reports or educational exhib-its.
•    Please ensure the type of submission is indicated in the brief description section of the up-load form provided via the link below.
•    Abstracts should be submitted as a Word document and include the Title, Authors and In-stitutions above the body of the abstract.
•    The body of the abstract should not exceed 250 words.  If you are submitting a scientific report, please use the following headings: Background, Methods, Results, Discussion.  
•    Accepted abstracts will be invited to present e-posters at the BSGAR Annual Meeting (full details will be provided after acceptance).

The Clive Bartram Prize will be awarded to the best scientific report by a trainee. The winner will receive a prize of £200 in John Lewis vouchers and will be invited to present a pre-recorded 4-minute oral presentation at the Annual Meeting on Friday 5th February 2021.
