Confidentiality and Judging

The judging process

Stage 1

  • Submitted entries are sent to the judges using the same online portal as the entrants
  • At this stage supporting materials are not made available
  • Judges review and score independently against judging criteria for each category
  • Judges’ scores are returned to us and collated for each category.

Stage 2

  • Group judging day takes place on 1st October 2021
  • Scores are provided following the initial round of judging
  • Judging panel convenes (in groups, according to expertise and experience)
  • Judges review initial group scores and discuss each entry in detail
  • It is at this stage that supporting materials are taken into consideration.

Following the group discussions, judges re-score the entries to identify finalists and winners.

Stage 3 for PMEA Company of the Year award only

Following consideration of all submissions into PMEA, together with analysis of IQVIA data relating to company performance throughout 2020 and Q1 2021, judges will shortlist companies for interview.

Shortlisted companies will be contacted to arrange an interview via Zoom, which will take place on Friday 22 October 2021. No alternative date is available.

Finalists will be announced on www.pmlive.com and also in Pharmaceutical Market Europe.

All entrants will be notified by mid-October via email as to whether they are finalists.

The judges’ decision is final and neither the organiser nor the judging panel will enter into individual correspondence about the results.

Confidentiality

You have full control of the information you provide. We understand the sensitivity of the material.

We have systems in place to ensure confidentiality at every stage of the judging process:

  • Every judge must agree to sign a detailed and legally binding confidentiality agreement before appointment
  • All PMGroup staff are bound by the same confidentiality agreement
  • Judges are required to destroy all copies of entries following the judging day
  • Access to supporting materials is restricted to the judging meeting on the day.

The results will be announced at the Awards on Wednesday 24 November 2021.
