The rationale behind the BioNewsRound Award at Genesis is to celebrate the success stories in the sector. Be they product development, financial or deals but also recognising that those that publicise their success well have a great impact in terms of building confidence in the sector among investors and policymakers.

To this end, the judges will elect a winner based on three main criteria:

• The significance of the subject matter announced to the company – a major validation or value realisation for the equity owners and so on
• The significance to patients and payers – does the advanced technology or product represent a major breakthrough
• The presentation of the announcement – the judges will have seen the press release, but how well does the speaker convey the excitement and significance of the item
