Seize the opportunity to show off your skills and abilities as an agency in the Communications Team of the Year competition. With just one space left in the International Challenge, one in the NHS Challenge and limited availability in the Charity Challenge, agencies wishing to take part should reserve their place now to avoid missing out.

The  PharmaTimes Communications Team of the Year 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!

PharmaTimes Business manager & competition lead Anna Yeardley explains: "Your team will benefit from a day of professional development, as well as receiving an in-depth feedback report detailing their scores across a number of key communications competencies and including qualitative feedback from the judges.

"With entry fees set at £150 per team, this is a fantastic opportunity to be measured against industry peers and raise your agency profile, with a minimal submission process and no preparation before the day required."

New for 2018 is the Charity Challenge, which involves a real brief, developed in partnership with Beating Bowel Cancer and Bowel Cancer UK.

The charities' CEO, Deborah Alsina MBE says: "We look forward to working with PharmaTimes Media to put together a brief that challenges agencies to raise the profile of the charity and awareness of bowel cancer – the UK’s second biggest cancer killer.”

Compete for this prestigious new award and provide invaluable help to this well deserving cause at the same time.

Communications Team of the Year will take place at The Tower Hotel, London on Thursday 15 November, alongside the 25th Marketer of the Year and the all-new Sales Awards.
