The Global Awards® 2016 competition is open for entries. For 22 years, the international Global Awards has honored the World’s Best Healthcare & Wellness Advertising℠ and has served as a touchstone for celebrating creative achievement in healthcare and wellness communications beyond the barriers of language and culture.
The Global Awards’ Executive Jury and Grand Jury of industry experts represents the top creative minds in the field of healthcare & wellness advertising. Jury members are recruited from more than 20 countries on six continents. The Global Awards jury selection process ensures that each entry is judged by renowned international talent with global knowledge and perspective from the industry.
Annually, in addition to the Grand Jury’s online judging sessions, the Global Awards organizes live judging sessions around the globe to review digital based works and collateral materials that support a campaign and which cannot be judged online. These global live sessions are hosted at prominent international healthcare communication agencies and allow jurors to examine in detail multi-paged works including: sales kits, direct mail, brochures, point of purchase displays, and annual reports.
The 2016 Global Award winners will be announced on November 17, 2016 and will be showcased at awards ceremonies in New York City and Sydney, Australia.
