Intel ISEF Board Size

Postby danielkang2 » Tue Feb 21, 2017 12:54 am

I have a 36x48 inch poster board but I cannot fit all the info so I am redoing my board to a larger poster size but I want to know what is a good size for an appealing large board that is flat for Intel ISEF? Like specific sizes that are good proportions and look appealing. Something like this size. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oD66isUN5gU

Hi danielkang2,

Many people at the Intel ISEF use displays that occupy the entire allowed space -- double check the current rules.

The way you lay out your poster will have more of an effect on how appealing your board is than the dimensions of your board. So, I would focus on the content and layout of your board, rather than on its dimensions.

These three sources provide good advice on making an attractive display:
