BOBI Real-life Submissions - celebrate the projects you're most proud of

November 15th, 2023

Get ready to showcase your brilliant projects at the BOBI Awards 2024, where real-life achievements take centre stage across five categories:
  • Best Business Impact
  • Best Customer Insight
  • Best Use of Innovation
  • Best Patient-Centric Approach
  • The Chair's Award: Best Approach to DE&I

While the first four categories have a well-established legacy of drawing in top-notch entries, this year, the awards include the Chair's Award for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I). This is an opportunity to gain recognition for your efforts in this crucial area and will be awarded for an approach which applies a clear DE&I focus and leads to a decision which had an impact on the UK business and/ or patient access to medicine.

Entries open on 1st December but now is a good time to start planning which projects to enter and gaining any initial agreement to take part.

What's involved?
  • Craft your submission in Powerpoint. You can draw on slide content from your internal / client presentations, ensuring alignment with the BOBI brief and obtaining necessary approvals.
  • Complete a simple entry form, detailing your project team and uploading your submission. You can also specify any competitor exclusions for judging.
  • Rules are in place to ensure an even playing field for all participants, with clear guidelines on slide limits, video content, and branding.
  • When entries open, we'll share the judging criteria plus tips on how to make your entry stand out.
