Join the cause of recognizing initiatives in dermatology which positively impact skin health
The SKINPACT Awards aim to inspire dermatologists and other doctors with an interest in dermatology, to develop and help implement voluntary projects that support a sustainable dermatology community. Four awards are attributed annually, covering 2 categories: Community Leadership and Excellence in Education, based on criteria defined by an experts panel and chosen by community voting.
It was our pleasure and honor to evaluate and shortlist from the 55 projects that were submitted last year from Latin America. In fact, we were quite impressed by the quality of the projects competing for one of the 2016 SKINPACT Awards. Our region is now benefitting from the financial support the winning projects have earned.
This year, our dermatology colleagues from the Asia Pacific region have submitted 105 projects. The Community Awards are to be selected from the 5 finalists in each category through on-line voting open to the worldwide dermatology community. Your votes matter in determining which Community Leadership and Excellence in Education projects will earn the US$ 10,000 award to support a sustainable dermatology community.
The Community Awards are to be selected from the 5 finalists in each category
