Final Week: 2021 Health+Wellness Awards

Medicine+Healthcare | Pharma+Insurance | Fitness+Nutrition | Mental+Spiritual Health | COVID Communications | Public Health+Safety | Seniors+Aging | CBD+Medical Cannabis

 

Never has it been so clear that health and wellness are of transcendent importance to our individual and societal well-being – as well as the epicenter of the national conversation and policy debate – and an area in which graphic designers have a vital role to play. Our annual competition has long taken in the big picture of healthcare: traditional medical industries and practitioners such as doctors, nurses and essential workers; hospitals and home care; pharmaceuticals and insurance; mental health and counseling; healthy lifestyles and fitness and exercise; organic foods and supplements; life and work balance; meditation and spirituality; and public health and education initiatives. And this year, we honor as well the exceptional contribution of COVID-19 Communications to the general welfare.  It’s a rare opportunity at a unique moment to be recognized by clients, prospects, the creative community, family and friends for design, advertising and marketing excellence.
