PM Society Awards 2018 – Entries Open!

The Pharmaceutical Marketing Society is delighted to announce that the 33rd annual awards, the longest running and still most popular healthcare awards event is now open for entries.

For those who are less familiar with these awards they cover a wide range of healthcare communications in both print and/or digital formats. What’s more, many categories are judged, uniquely, by their target customers – for example primary and secondary care doctors and nurses judge the ads that are aimed at them and pharmaceutical industry personnel likewise. Our creative (which we call Craft) awards are judged by some of the best talent in the business.

Categories of award are mostly as last year with 2 notable exceptions:

  1. There is now only one Campaign Award covering both primary and secondary care mixed media campaigns
  2. There is a new industry-judged Innovation Award

And please remember that most categories are open to work designed for use overseas as long as it has been created in the UK. Please also note there is a limit of 3 “single-item” categories into which any single piece of creative work can be entered (see FAQs for further details).

All entries will be subject to rigorous judging procedures both online with industry standard surveys though specialist market research company Kantar Health and by our panel of experienced and respected creative directors led by this year’s Head Judge Tom Richards.

Please study the entry criteria carefully when making your entries which we look forward to receiving by the closing date of Friday 19th October. If you require any assistance before making your entries please contact the PM Society on 01403 264898 or email

This year we are pleased to be supporting the charity Team Essie.

Our glittering awards ceremony will take place once again at the incomparable Grosvenor House next year on Friday 1st February 2019 when we look forward to seeing you.
