Poster Displays were also a key attraction at the Congress. A selection of posters was displayed in and near the trade exhibition each day, and made a valuable contribution to the wealth of resources and information available to Congress attendees.
Prizes were awarded to outstanding posters throughout the week, and OT AUSTRALIA congratulates the following prize recipients:
- Klara Jakobsen, Norway - How disabled women use their time when employed
