In society


We believe in advancing dermatology through innovative medical solutions. One of the ways we do this is by inviting dermatologists and other healthcare professionals to enter their innovative projects for the SKINPACT Awards. We will then provide financial support for the winning projects, thus giving a boost to many worthy skin health initiatives.




Inspiring new dermatology initiatives

The SKINPACT Awards aim to inspire dermatologists, healthcare professionals and scientific societies to develop and help implement projects that advance dermatology and support a sustainable dermatology community.

The first SKINPACT Awards were presented to the winning projects during the 2015 World Conference of Dermatology in Vancouver. Since then, the programme has been rolled out across the different regions of the world, starting with  Latin America in 2016, Asia Pacific in 2017,  North America in 2018, and will close with Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA) in 2019. You can see the shortlisted and winning projects from 2015 to 2017 on the SKINPACT Awards website.


How does SKINPACT work?

(Dates of the 2018 North American edition)

Four stages:

  1. PROJECT SUBMISSION:  Dermatologists are invited to submit projects or initiativesns addressing unmet needs in one of two categories: Community Leadership and Excellence in Education on the Galderma SKINPACT Awards website. (16 February to 31 July 2018)

  2. EXPERT PANEL REVIEW & PRE-SELECTION: A distinguished Expert Panel of dermatologists will review, rank and shortlist the projects (5 per category) and determine one per category for the Expert Panel Award.  The expert panel is made up of renowned dermatologists.  (1 September to 1 November 2018)

  3. WORLDWIDE COMMUNITY VOTING: The 5 highest ranked projects in each category are then put forward for the International Dermatology Community online vote, to determine which of them will receive the Community Vote Award. (15 November 2018 to 15 January 2019)

  4. WINNING PROJECTS AWARDED:  Each winning project (Expert Panel & Community Vote) in each category (4 in total) will be awarded $ 10,000 USD. (1 March to 5 March 2019)
