HLG75 – Poster Competition

To celebrate HLG’s 75th anniversary, we teamed up with our colleagues at Health Education England to invite you to produce a poster.  We received many brilliant entries that made it hard to judge those that would be successful in the competition – you can see a selection of them on the carousel below, while all of them are listed further down the page.

Our theme was:

“Celebrating a profession: The millions of decisions that health library and knowledge specialists make possible”.

This built on the hugely successful joint initiative launched in 2018, #A Million Decisions, which called for all decisions within the healthcare sector to be fully evidence-based, and for health service providers and commissioners to employ and make use of the expertise of librarians and knowledge specialists in meeting their obligations under The Health and Social Care Act 2012


As part of this initiative, we have collectively demonstrated and promoted the skills, roles and positive impact of health librarians and knowledge specialists in supporting key health and care agendas. The poster competition was an opportunity for you to share more of your great impact.

As part of the remit, we set out a number of themes to provide inspiration, with a call that the important part should be the impact that the library or knowledge service has on the service it works with:

  • Past  – illustrating the evolution of health libraries – this could be about service development, workforce development or some other historic aspect of health libraries
  • Present – highlighting the positive impact of an aspect of healthcare libraries or the impact of a particular innovation
  • Future/new technologies – highlighting innovative use of new technologies or predicting future impacts of health and care libraries
  • Partnership/collaboration  – highlighting the collaborative nature of health libraries demonstrating the impact of working in partnership 
  • Knowledge management/knowledge mobilisation – highlighting the impact of work involved in mobilising knowledge and know-how by the library and knowledge specialist team
  • Library spaces – highlighting the impact that library space has on health and care, may include innovative uses of library spaces or concepts for the healthcare library space of the future 

The Judging Process

Our judging panel was made up of a team of three, a representative from the HLG committee, from Health Education England and an independent judge with expert knowledge and experience in designing conference posters.

  • Lynsey Hawker, Co-Chair HLG
  • Alison Day, Knowledge Service Manager, HEE
  • Helen Else, Library & Knowledge Services Manager

We used a judging matrix to score all entries on a set of predetermined criteria and based on these scores we have awarded a prize to the overall winner.  We have also selected three entries to receive highly commended awards and awarded a further three prizes to winners in our student, apprentice or early career category.

These winning posters will be showcased at our HLG Anniversary event on 14 October.  You can register to attend the event online or in person at Friend’s House in London via the CILIP events page.

Following the event the winning posters will be displayed on this page as well as on our poster carousel.

All entrants to the competition will receive a commemorative HLG75 pin badge for listed authors.  

Thank you again for sharing your impact and innovation with us and we look forward to sharing the winning entries with you soon.
