BioBuzz Media Awards NFTs to 2021 Annual Award Winners at Baltimore Celebration

Awards recognize regional life science trailblazers in the BioHealth Capital Region

BALTIMORE, MD (May 5, 2022) – BioBuzz Media, a platform for industry professionals and job seekers looking to plug into regional biotech communities, recently celebrated the distinguished winners of the 2021 BioBuzz Awards. The event, which was attended by over 125 industry leaders, executives and professionals, was held at the new City Garage Science & Technology Center in Baltimore’s developing Port Covington neighborhood and was sponsored by Workforce Genetics, Scheer Partners, South Duvall, Weller Development, Fulton Bank, and Steer, LLC. The BioTechnical Institute (BTI) of Maryland was also a nonprofit workforce development partner.

The BioBuzz Awards were started in 2020 to celebrate the exciting and groundbreaking work being done by the BioHealth Capital Region (BHCR) life science community and the individuals that make innovation happen across the region.

Finalists are selected based on solicited nominations, with the community voting to determine the winners. This year there were over 4,500 votes total, more than double the number of votes from the awards’ inaugural year. Awards are distributed to winners as digital art non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

“By issuing the awards as NFTs we have established, through an immutable digital record, that these individuals and organizations have earned these achievements as decided by our community,” shared Chris Frew, BioBuzz Media Founder and CEO.  “As BioBuzz progresses with the development of our next generation Web3 community platform that will not only continue to create value for the ecosystem, but also allow members to share in that value, the NFT awards were a fun way to begin to educate our community and expose them to digital assets built on the blockchain.”
