All the posters were first short listed by the jury which consisted of Prof. Attiya Bari, Consultant Pediatrician and Advisor of PharmEvo Research Forum, Mr. Shaukat Ali Jawaid Chief Editor Pakistan Journal of Medical Sciences and Chairperson of PharmEvo Research Forum and Dr. Shaista Waheed Prof. of Obstetrics & Gynaecology at Nawaz Sharif Medical College Gujrat. The criteria used was case reports were not considered, some old studies which have already been published were also not considered. Similarly routine studies, survey reports including studies on Covid also got very low priority. The criteria used to judge the best posters was some innovation, innovative idea, trying to find a solution to some problem. It also highlighted the fact that healthcare professionals, juniors in particular need to be educated and trained how to prepare posters. Some had used old templates, uniformity was missing in some and some vital information about the study was missing from some posters .

Later Prof. Tayyaba Waseem Prof of Obstetrics & Gynaecology at SIMS who is also another Advisor of PharmEvo Research Forum joined the jury. All the posters in general and those identified during shortlisting in particular were carefully evaluated. If the authors of the posters were present, they were asked to make the brief presentation highlighting the objective and their conclusion. They were also asked some questions regarding their study. Fourteen studies were identified which had covered some important topic but in some the methodology was not perfect while in some the objective and conclusions did not tally. Some of these deficiencies were identified hence it was a learning experience for those authors who were present. Later on during the discussion in which all the four evaluators participated, eight studies were again short listed out of which then three best were selected for First, Second and Third Prize.
