How do you ensure confidentiality of work submitted?

You have total control of the information that may be disclosed. Only content within the executive summary (max 200 words) may be published when reporting the finalist entries. If, in exceptional cases, you prefer to disclose only the title of your entry, please make that clear on the entry platform together with the details of any visuals that are not suitable for publication. Should this be the case, we will limit coverage relating to your entry.

Each judge is required to sign a legally-binding confidentiality agreement before appointment. PMGroup undertakes to adhere to the same confidentiality agreement.

A maximum of nine judges, with specific responsibility for the category entered, will see entries submitted in the Healthcare Communications Awards and Creativity and Innovation Categories.

A team of independent professionals review the entries in all other categories.

How are the Communiqué Awards presented?

The Communiqué Awards culminate in a gala black-tie dinner and awards evening on Thursday 6 July 2023 at the Grosvenor House Hotel on London’s Park Lane. Guests from a wide range of disciplines attend each year to recognise best practice and it has become a true highlight in the industry’s calendar.
