CNS is Celebrating 10 years!



Create a visual of a nutrition and health-related theme

Infographics provide an excellent visual platform to communicate nutrition and health concepts in an efficient, easy to interpret, creative, and colourful way.  They offer an excellent opportunity to share evidence-based information with heath care professionals working with patients, as well as to communicate directly to the public (e.g. as posters in public spaces and on social media).

The design and development of infographics is an excellent skill for students/trainees to develop.  In recognition of this, the Canadian Nutrition Society (CNS) holds an annual Infographic Award Competition in an effort to challenge trainee participants to create factual, evidenced-based, nutrition and health-related infographics that are visual and contain key messages that are simple and easy to understand.

Guidelines for CNS Infographic Usage
For authors of CNS infographics 
Guideline for Authors +/-
  1. Authors will be asked whether or not they agree with the sharing of their infographics if they are chosen as one of the finalists.
  2. If authors agree, we ask that some verbiage is added to the chosen infographic to be posted on the website. For example: “This infographic was chosen as 1st place finalist in the CNS 2021 Infographic Competition.”

Citing CNS infographics in research 
Citing CNS Infographics +/-

CNS Infographics may be cited in your research providing that you include the following information:

  3. Website name
  4. The infographic publisher (e.g. Canadian Nutrition Society)
  5. The creation date (although it is also acceptable to use the “posted” date)
