Twelve UK communication agencies have been nominated by their pharma partners for this year’s Marketing Communications Agency Team of the Year awards, run by PharmaTimes.

This year has so far seen 53 nominations from 15 pharma companies, who are all seeking out their favourite communication agencies. A total of 12 have been nominated this year, with Synergy Vision receiving the most votes, closely followed by Tonic Life and Succinct Communications.

PharmaTimes’ MCAT awards do not judge agencies on their past work, making it different from other competitions. Instead, agencies are given a brief on the day and are expected to come up with a pitch for this idea with little thinking time, something that truly tests their abilities.
