Uniquely in the industry, the PharmaTimes Communications Team of the Year competition provides the opportunity for agencies to demonstrate their competencies and skills as an agency in front of senior level, experienced pharma marketing and communications professionals.

Dynamic and different, the competition invites healthcare communications agencies to put forward teams to 'face the panel' in an on-the-day pitch challenge, with the team judged on their ability to answer the brief, play to their strengths and win the challenge.

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 optimal communications mix for the task in hand.
