How the Competition Works
Competitors are given a fictional pharmaceutical brand communications brief. This has been developed with input from a steering group comprising both pharma industry and agency professionals, to ensure its alignment to true communications challenges.
The teams and individuals will continue the innovations of the 2020 competition and deliver their response to the challenge brief via video link. PharmaTimes received lots of positive feedback from finalists about how the virtual finals days were conducted and are confident this year will surpass the last.
To add to the learning experience this competition offers, after the event you will be provided feedback from the judges about your presentation.
