Now in its eighth year, these awards continue to celebrate the innovation, quality and results achieved by digital communications within the healthcare arena. We aim to highlight the best programmes, tools and campaigns across a broad range of digital activities, all within the pharmaceutical and healthcare world.

This year we’ve taken note of your feedback and updated the categories to keep them current and relevant.

  • We now have 8 EFFECTIVENESS categories where the focus is on how projects and campaigns met objectives and delivered results – promotional, educational, partnerships, patient, market access, meetings, multichannel and corporate.
  • In addition, there are 3 CRAFT awards – judged NOT on effectiveness, but on their quality, impact and creativity - agency self-promotion, film and animation.
  • We have made an exciting change to our INNOVATION category by splitting this into two – the first innovation award will acknowledge the use of new technology and the second creativity and novel thinking.
  • This year we will be recognising not only your best Digital Account or Project Manager but also your best teams with our new category Agency Digital Team.

We have a fantastic educational meeting on the day of the Digital Awards – Digital Works V (click here to see reports from previous meetings within the Digital Works series) so please pencil in an afternoon of education on 6th September at the Brewery.

And don’t forget there are many opportunities to raise your company’s profile at the premier digital healthcare awards event in the UK, for more details of how you can showcase your company to your customers and peers please contact Lorna Milner.

All that remains for me to say is start working on your entries now and don’t forget to get them to us by Thursday 6 April. Finalists will be announced here on Thursday 18 May and the second round judging day will be on the 15th June. Tickets will be on sale via the website shortly. Should you need help with your entry don’t hesitate to give Lorna a call on 01403 264898 and she will be happy to arrange some assistance for you.

I look forward to seeing you at the Awards ceremony on Wednesday 6 September.
