Says Jon Watson, Convenor of Judges and Group Creative Director, Ogilvy HealthWorld, “This year’s submissions were particularly interesting for a number of reasons. Firstly, production values have once again improved. There was a high level of craft in both print and film, and digital had been used very effectively. Secondly, integrated case-history style submissions really stood out for their innovation and insight. And finally, it was fascinating to see the increased level and quality of entries from emerging markets - China in particular.”

Winners will be revealed at the IPA Best of Health Awards ceremony and party at the majestic Great Halls of Vinopolis in London Bridge on Thursday 27th June 2013.
