Guests at this, the fourteenth annual Communiqué Awards, were entertained by comedian John Bishop who shared his experiences of his early career in the pharma industry.

In his opening speech, Mark Savage, CEO of PMGroup noted that this year's entries were among the best crafted and thoughtfully produced the judges have ever seen – and that they demonstrated healthcare communications and medical education are undergoing an exciting evolution – one that's completely in step with the industry as a whole.

Among this year's entries were initiatives from industry; patient associations; the NHS and others. The judging panel reviewed successful programmes from throughout Europe including Poland, Turkey, France, Germany and Spain.

Special mention this year has to go to MHP Health Mandate, with the company achieving an incredible seven wins, one highly commended and five finalist positions. Among their winning trophies were the awards for Communiqué Specialist Consultancy of the Year and Communiqué Communications Consultancy of the Year.
