To develop an appreciation of the diverse information available on fungi.

We want you to design an A4 information sheet suitable for publication and sharing with the public that contains concise and interesting fungal facts. The sheet should be colourful and contain clear images related to the facts (When including images make sure that they are free to use and include photo credits where relevant). Your design should be eye-catching, and font should be legible. Make sure that you use your own words as plagiarism will be penalised.
The winning entries and the top runners up will be published on the British Mycological Society’s & UK Fungus Day websites as well as associated social media.
