Covid-19 will not stop the 2020 Communique Awards

Healthcare Communications

The 2020 judging of the Communiqué Awards will be conducted as planned on 7th and 21st May, but by video conference instead of in person. Debbie Tuesley, Events Manager at PMGroup Worldwide Ltd, said: “The two judging dates will remain the same, with the online judging replacing the physical judging days. The Communiqué Awards team is committed to holding a live event in 2020. At the moment, we are still working towards an event on 2nd July, although we acknowledge that this may well be unlikely. We will know more when the Government guidelines are updated and will ensure that all entrants are kept informed. In the meantime, we pass on our very best wishes and thanks to all those who are working on the front line of healthcare at this time, and those supporting them.”

“communications people are always flexible and happy to adapt to fast-moving situations“

Global Head of Commercial Strategy at Huntsworth Plc, Annabelle Sandeman and Communications Consultant Louise Dunn, said in a joint statement: “As chairs, we have been working with the PMGroup team to find a way to recognise all the hard work of the entrants, at the same time as ensuring that all of the restrictions on movement and socialising are adhered to. As ever, communications people are always flexible and happy to adapt to fast-moving situations, so we have collectively decided to conduct the judging via video conferencing. All the judges will continue to adhere to the same stringent confidentiality and the judging will follow the same rigorous two-stage process, including both the pre-scoring round and then a full review of the top entries from this first round of scoring.”
