The MHSCN Awards of Excellence program is returning refreshed for 2019! The awards honor exceptional efforts in health care strategic planning, marketing, public relations and communications from the past year.
For this awards cycle, we have simplified the award categories and added some new honors recognizing health care communicators, marketers and public relations professionals.
Award submissions will be accepted in three categories:
- Best in Public Relations, Marketing and Communications: This category honors any marketing, public relations or communications project or effort substantially conducted in 2018. Examples include marketing campaigns; media efforts; video series; print or digital publications; and other communications, marketing or public relations work products. MHSCN members and nonmembers are eligible to submit entries in this category.
- MHSCN Professional of the Year: This new category honors a health care communicator, marketer or public relations professional who has demonstrated exceptional skills and leadership in health care communications, marketing or public relations. To be considered for the award, the nominee must be a MHSCN member.
- MHSCN Rising Star: This new category honors a health care communicator, marketer or public relations professional in the first five years of their career in health care communications, marketing or public relations who demonstrates strong abilities and growing expertise in health care communications. To be considered for the award, the nominee must be a MHSCN member.
The awards submission period opens May 20 and closes June 28. Submissions will be collected online.
The entry fee is $50 for the first submission and $25 for each additional submission from the same individual.
Awards will be presented at the MHSCN Fall Conference.
