The shortlist is in – we now know who is up for one of this year’s PM Society Digital Media Awards.

More than 30 agencies have been named as finalists – from Langland to Havas Life Medicom (full list below) – in the awards that celebrate excellence in digital communications.   

Those lucky enough to get through this first round will now face a challenging grilling by pharma industry and healthcare professional judging panels to secure a gong. Finalists will be judged on the effectiveness of digital programmes, with some exclusively judged on creativity and innovation.  

Gold, silver and bronze winners will be announced on Thursday, 25 September. The awards ceremony in the evening will be preceded by an educational lecture led by LinkedIn’s Nicolas Cappiello, who will talk about the relevance and opportunities of current and future innovations at LinkedIn for the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries. 

Rachel Farrow, chair of the Awards Committee said: “The format of the Digital Media Awards is evolving with the addition of the interactive exhibition of short-listed work, a more “digital” feel to the evening and an educational lecture to embed further the principles of sharing excellence on which the PM Society is founded.” 

“We believe our two-stage judging process is one of the most rigorous of any awards ceremony and the value of a DMA gong is now well-established industrywide as a mark of quality and success and in many cases a driver for new business.”
