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.

Entry to the Communications Team of the Year competition is now open and is priced at just £150 per team. Head of events Gill Chalk says: “Uniquely in the industry, the PharmaTimes Communications Team of the Year competition provides entrants with the opportunity to demonstrate their competencies and skills in front of a judging panel of senior industry marketers and communications specialists.”

Healthcare communications agencies are invited to put forward teams to face the panel in an on-the-day pitch challenge, with finalists judged on their ability to think creatively and quickly as a team, measured against their peers from the wider industry.

The finals day will take place on 12 October in central London. Finalists will benefit from an in-depth feedback report detailing their scores across a number of key communications competencies, as well as qualitative feedback from judges. They will also be invited to the awards ceremony where their success will be celebrated alongside other industry leaders.

The ceremony, to be held on 9th November, also coincides with the presentation of the PharmaTimes Marketer of the Year Awards 2017.
