Once again,judges will be looking for evidence of pioneering thought processes, unexpected ways of using technology and data, and new attitudes towards marketing and communications.

Finalists will be asked to select the category that best suits their skill sets: the NHS Challenge or the International Challenge. More information on this is available here.

It’s well worth the effort too, say previous winners:

“We are delighted to have won the Communications Team of the Year Award for the NHS Category and for the judges’ recognition of our unique and integrated approach to the challenge. The competition brief reflects many of our clients’ challenges, both in terms of medicines access and share of voice and we relished the opportunity to work as a team to solve the problem in a strategic and creative way. While there were five of us representing MHP on the day, we want our whole team to take ownership of this fantastic award; it is their incredible work day-to-day, which ultimately inspired our winning programme, so they should all feel very proud.” Kate Podgson, MHP Communications, NHS Challenge Winner 2015

“The entire Tonic team are immensely proud of our remarkable achievement in winning this prestigious award. It not only reflects the outstanding abilities of each and every member of the team to deliver creative and strategic thinking, it demonstrates the quality of talent that is available to our clients on a global basis. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience as we absolutely thrive on challenging our thinking and working collaboratively.”

Emma Coughlan, Tonic Life Communications - International Challenge Winner 2015
