Judges for the 2021 Azbee Awards of Excellence said the publication’s "writing and reporting are consistently top-notch" during the virtual awards ceremony on Thursday.
"Our team put in an incredible effort in 2020 covering coronavirus vaccine development as well as an otherwise busy and eventful year in biotech and pharma," said BioPharma Dive Lead Editor Ned Pagliarulo. “We're proud to earn the recognition of the American Society of Business Publication Editors."
BioPharma Dive also earned Gold awards in News Analysis for its hemophilia story and a Gold award in Online Single Topic Coverage for its vaccine coverage.
