Welcome to the Communiqué Awards

Welcome to the Communiqué Awards 2018

Since 1997, the Communiqué Awards has celebrated outstanding work in healthcare communications, showcasing the very best that our industry has to offer across local, European and international markets. To ensure the Awards continue to set the pace in identifying and recognising innovation, creativity and strategic depth, along with executional excellence and effectiveness, each year senior industry leaders review and challenge Award categories and criteria. For 2018, this has led to the introduction of two new categories: Excellence in Integrated Non-Promotional Communications, and Excellence in Communication Through Creative Execution; alongside refreshed criteria for other categories.

Let's be clear, to win a Communiqué Award is a tremendous accolade, because it means that programmes or initiatives, individuals and teams have made a real difference – to patients, to stakeholders and influencers, and to the reputation of our industry itself.

A benchmark of excellence

Each year, a changing panel of over 100 industry experts and leaders, drawn from advocacy, agency, pharma, professional services and regulators take part in a rigorous judging process, championing the highest possible standards to identify winners that showcase the very best in healthcare communications.

The Communiqué Awards presentation

The Communiqué Awards take place at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane on Thursday 28th June 2018. It’s an unmissable opportunity to share an evening with fellow professionals, as well as important stakeholders from different disciplines and geographies. I look forward to seeing you there!

Good luck ...
