CNS is Celebrating 10 years!


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).

In recognition of this, the Canadian Nutrition Society (CNS) holds an annual "Nutrigraphic" 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. 

Of the submissions received for 2021, the following 10 infographics have been selected as finalists.  Starting April 21, 2021, registered  CNS Annual Conference delegates can participate in a dialogue with finalists and can comment on their infographics by logging into the Delegates section of the CNS Annual Conference website and accessing the Infographic Expo. Further instructions to accessing this conference delegate website will be sent to registered delegates by email. 

2021 Finalists: 

The top 3 infographics (as judged by a panel of experts) will be chosen and announced at the 2021 CNS Annual Conference.
