The primary author of the top five scoring posters will be given certificates of recognition, monetary AAD certificates, and the poster abstract will be published in an online JAAD supplement.

New therapies will be given top priority, particularly data from pivotal trials of unapproved drugs or unapproved indications. In addition, novel observations that could be practice-changing will also be given top consideration.
