Welcome to the Communiqué Awards 2022

New Co-Chairs

After three years, Louise Dunn and Annabelle Sandeman are stepping down as co-chairs. I would like to thank them for their outstanding support in developing the awards during this period.

I am now delighted to welcome Fiona McMillan and Jeremy Clark as co-chairs for the 2022 Awards. To see more about Fiona and Jeremy taking over the co-chair role see here.

It’s now time to start thinking about your entries!

We are continuing to use the online entry portal, accessible via this link:

This entry system streamlines entering, making the whole process much simpler for you – the entrants. It will enable:

  • Complete control of your entries
  • Changes to be made up to the deadline date (no more having to re-submit via email)
  • Clear instructions on what you need to include in your entry/entries
  • Easy upload of supporting materials
  • Auto-confirmation that your entries have been received
  • Immediate and secure payment system.

As with every year, the judging criteria and entry format have been reviewed and evolved to reflect changes in our industry.

Given the success of past two year’s judging via Zoom, it is likely that in 2022 the majority of the judging will, once again, take place via Zoom. Face-to-face face interviews (Government restrictions allowing) will be put in place for the Individual, Team and Company Awards categories.

The Communiqué Awards proved in 2021 that we can act nimbly to deal with any challenges and this year will be no different. The changes to existing categories reflect an agile and thorough approach to the ongoing development of the Communiqué Awards, with every category having undergone thorough review to ensure they continue to reflect best practice in our industry and the excellent support and positive impact your work has on outcomes for patients, the public and healthcare providers.

We can’t wait to see you all again this year as a judge, entrant, participant or winner.

The Communiqué Awards are rightly a highlight of the healthcare communications industry calendar, and the boost that a win gives to an agency and all its people is tremendous. Oxford PharmaGenesis celebrated our most successful year ever in 2020, despite the unique challenges of a global pandemic, and entering the awards in 2021 felt a natural way to thank everyone for their commitment and dedication. As a company with a broad Medical Affairs focus, we’ve been delighted to see the Communiqué Awards evolve in recent years to include a wider range of more medical-oriented categories. This very much reflects the growth in prominence of Medical Affairs in the pharma industry, and the updated category of Medical Affairs Agency of the Year seemed like an exciting opportunity to showcase the work Oxford PharmaGenesis has been doing in this area.

We are honoured and delighted to have won Communique’s inaugural Leadership Award for Action on Workforce Diversity and Inclusion. We have worked hard, top down and bottom up, to make a meaningful difference – we’ve tried to embed diversity, equity and inclusion across all aspects of our business, not just internally but also externally in our client and community outreach. It’s a huge privilege for our whole team to have our efforts recognised in this way. We recognise that we are still on a learning journey and we will continue to endeavour to do the best we can to make sure that D&I is in our DNA, both individually and collectively at McCann Health Medical Communications.

We’re beyond proud to have won the inaugural Communiqué award for Agility and Flexibility. It recognises and celebrates the hard work of a group of dedicated collaborators, who were determined to support patients during the first wave of COVID-19. The high quality of all the finalists’ work and the rigor of the judging process make it all the more significant. It’s a source of great pride, joy and motivation for all the Dovetail team and our wonderful clients.

Claire Munro, Owner, Dovetail Strategies

We were delighted to win two awards at the Communiqué Awards 2021, in the categories of Best Use of Data Visualisation and Charitable Campaign of the Year. After what has been a challenging time for the entire charity sector, we are very proud that our innovative work has been recognised at such a prestigious event. 2021 saw the World Health Organization launch their Global Road Map to defeat meningitis. As one of the wide range of stakeholders who participated in its development, it’s very rewarding to have recognition from the charity sector on our role. Thank you for your support.

Liz Rodgers, Research Project Manager, Meningitis Research Foundation
