The jury’s motivation:

“Magnotion surprises with research communication in luxury packaging. They link research on a small moth’s navigational skills to music, poetry, jewelry and perfume – the scent of science. It is innovative, original and boundary pushing and shows that only the imagination sets the limits for how research can be communicated. ”
