PRmoment Health Comms Awards 2022 Shortlist Announced

Congratulations to all those companies shortlisted for the first edition of 'The PRmoment Health Comms Award 2022, presented by Adfactors PR in association with GCI Health.

Well done to all those of you who are shortlisted and we hope to see you at the online awards evening on the 29th of July at 5.30 PM where your peers will celebrate excellence in health communications. 

Commiserations to all those of you who were not shortlisted this year, it's the worst part of our jobs telling people they didn't quite make it.

Thank you to our sponsors Adfactors PR and GCI Health for their support. A special thanks to all our judges who went out of their way to support this endeavour, patiently going through entries and offering insights.

Madan Bahal, the co-founder and managing director, of Adfactors PR, said, “There is a growing need for strategic counsel for health communications and social impact communications. These areas are now an integral part of corporate actions, behaviour and narratives and we have to align these to societal expectations in the post-pandemic world. With this in mind, the PRmoment India Health Comms Awards with presenting partner Adfactors PR recognises the best of the work done in health and social impact communications over the pandemic period."

Hemali Bhutani Mahajan, managing director, GCI Health India commented, " It was heartening to see the quality of entries and the robustness of the process while deciding the shortlist. Health communication has moved to the centre stage of communication due to the pandemic and is almost a horizontal challenge affecting all aspects of life. It is time it was given its due place and efforts made to bring in the latest data, policy and campaign insights to handling the very challenging area of health communications."
