AMV BBDO’s ‘Blood’ campaign wins top prize at IPA Best of Health Show 2017

AMV BBDO took home the Best in Show award for their ‘Blood’ campaign for Libresse/Bodyform at the IPA Best of Health Show 2017.

21/11/2017

The world-renowned industry awards, which celebrate the best creative work in healthcare advertising, took place at the Wellcome Collection tonight (21st November).

Blood’ was the first campaign to celebrate and feature real blood, encouraging women to feel more equipped to exercise throughout their cycle. The creative featured a number of women playing sport with bloody toes, knees and hands alongside the powerful message that ‘no blood should hold us back”.

In total, five entries won Gold, 17 were awarded Silver, and 24 collected Bronze. Also awarded was the Pip Award for Young Talent to Cathy McManus and Sam Cavenagh of Sudler & Hennessey.

Says Diana Janicki, Convenor of Judges and Executive Creative Director TBWA\WorldHealth London; “Healthcare advertising can be a difficult job, balancing creative ideas with limitations and regulations. Judging this year’s Best of Health Show has provided an incredible insight into the different ways that brands and agencies bring their products to life. We were all impressed with the quality of entries, and everyone taking home a prize should be proud, especially our Best of Show ‘Blood’, a powerful campaign around what is something of a taboo subject.”

Says Chaka Sobhani, Chair of Judges and Chief Creative Officer, Leo Burnett; “The standard of entries for this year’s awards was extremely high and it really highlights the breadth and depth of healthcare creative. Congratulations to everyone taking home one of these prizes, particularly AMV BBDO for winning Best of Show.”

All winning work will be showcased on the Best of Health website. Join the conversation on Twitter using #BOH17.
