The PharmaTimes Communications Team of the Year is the only pharma industry awards that tests the ability of communications agency teams to assess quickly marketing challenges, and to derive optimum communications strategies and implementation programmes to achieve marketing objectives. Healthcare communications continues to evolve and comprises a number of diverse, yet intrinsically linked disciplines, including medical education, PR, policy, public affairs and market access. Reflecting this, teams entering PharmaTimes Communications Team of the Year will need to think strategically about the most appropriate communications mix for the task in hand. 


Are you ready to face the panel?

Uniquely in the industry, the PharmaTimes Communications Team of the Year competition provides entrants with the opportunity to demonstrate their competencies and skills in front of a judging panel of senior industry marketers and communications specialists.

Healthcare communications agencies are invited to put forward teams to face the panel in an on-the-day pitch challenge, with finalists judged on their ability to think creatively and quickly as a team, measured against their peers from the wider industry.

All finalists benefit from an in-depth feedback report detailing their scores across a number of key communications competencies, as well as qualitative feedback from judges.

Develop your agency skills and abilities against the best in the industry!

More than a dozen agencies went head to head in the finals of the 2014 Communications Team of the Year competition. Make sure you don't miss out in 2015!
