Says Dave Henderson, Chairman of Judges and Joint Executive Creative Director, DLKW Lowe, “I really enjoyed spending a day with the judging panel, all seasoned professionals, and I have to say I now have an even greater admiration of their skill.

After a full day of viewing all the shortlisted entries I must admit that I left feeling somewhat queasy; I just didn’t realise quite how many ailments and maladies there were ready to strike us all down. But mitigating this was the rather uplifting feeling I had from seeing that this specialised branch of advertising was in pretty rude health.”

Says Brett O’Connor, Convenor of Judges and Creative Director, VCCP Health: “I’m really pleased to say that after another year of judging health creative awards, the range of work submitted to this year’s Best of Health Awards confirms that the health sector in general is continuing to create work of a higher and higher standard. So much so that health is becoming less obviously a category apart from consumer and more something that, when done well, blends seamlessly into the wider world of advertising. Congratulations to all those shortlisted.”
