OTC Marketing Awards 2023 Open For Entries
Consumer healthcare innovation will take center stage at the OTC Marketing Awards 2023, which is now open for entries until 1 September.
Entries are now open for the OTC Marketing Awards 2023, which this year takes place on Thursday 23 November at the Royal Lancaster London.
Recognizing excellence in consumer healthcare marketing, the OTC Awards has been celebrating the UK industry’s best and brightest for almost three decades. These unique awards focus exclusively on OTC brands – including non-prescription medicines, food supplements and selected unlicensed healthcare products – across the pharmacy, retail and grocery sectors.
The 28th Annual OTC Awards is sponsored by Skills in Healthcare and Dexcel Pharma’s Pyrocalm Control 20mg Gastro-Resistant Tablets, and supported by PAGB, the UK’s consumer healthcare association.
OTC companies, agencies and associates have until Friday 1 September to submit their nominations for consideration by the Awards’ expert panel of judges. Entries are sought for 15 prestigious Awards, covering advertising, marketing, social media, digital and public relations campaigns, as well as packaging, training and innovation.
