BioMedix has won a total of 18 Aster Awards over the past three years.

With a near-perfect score in the top 5% of the competition, BioMedix won a Gold award for its 2011 webinar series.

“Although our nation has been challenged economically, the talent of healthcare marketing professionals seems to be at an all-time high.  The 2012 Aster Awards program contained some of the best advertising arguably in the world. The judge’s expectations were again surpassed,” said Melinda Lucas, Aster Awards Program Coordinator.

Entries are judged on their creativity, layout and design, functionality, message effectiveness, production quality and overall appeal, and must score at least in the top 16% to receive an award.
