Welcome to the Communiqué Awards

Welcome to the Communiqué Awards 2017

This year the Communiqué Awards marks twenty years since it was first founded to recognise and reward outstanding work in healthcare communications across local, European and international markets. Over two decades, the Awards has championed not just the highest standards in terms of innovation, strategic depth, shining creativity and executional excellence, but has set the pace in identifying and celebrating work which delivers real improvements in healthcare. To win a Communiqué Award means that programmes or initiatives, individuals and teams must together have truly made a 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 6 July 2017. 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 ...

“I am proud to have been involved with the Communiqué Awards since their inception 20 years ago, as entrant, winner, judge and even Chair. During that time, the ethos to identify, celebrate and showcase the very best work in our industry has created a focus on and celebration of professional excellence. And thanks to a continual evolution, the awards have kept in step through a period of unprecedented change. This combined with an ever more stringent, robust and transparent judging process means that the Communiqué Awards are more respected and more highly coveted than ever before.”
