All submitted works will go through a review. Once all works are submitted and reviewed to see they meet community and CEU standards, RSP will upload all eligible posters on the RSP’s website to a voting page and share the voting page on social media. Once these posts are public, you are welcome to re-share your poster and the voting link. IMPORTANT: please only reshare the posts directly from RSP’s website, as this will ensure your friends know how and where to vote for you. Do not upload the submitted artwork on your own profiles, since this will send all your votes on a detour (!)
