Awards Description

As a marketing professional, you are all too familiar with the process that it takes to see a project through from its conception to completion.  Initially, you are overwhelmed with the pressure of meetings, strategies, worries, changes and countless creatives and proofs.  Not all is lost.  Soon comes the excitement and justification when the project is completed and successful!  No one understands what you’ve been through more than industry experts that have spent careers very similar to your own.  Your hard work deserves a chance to shine… to really shine. Imagine that project getting the recognition it deserves!

Since the inception of The Aster Awards Program back in 2002, there hasn’t been another like it.  With the most inclusive groups and categories in healthcare advertising, the Aster Awards is the nation’s most elite competition dedicated to recognizing the most talented healthcare marketing professionals for outstanding excellence in advertising, marketing and communications.  If you have a marketing campaign or individual advertising project that shows your creativity and professionalism, consider entering the 2018 Aster Awards Program.

Winning entries, judged by a diverse panel of industry experts, are published in the Marketing Healthcare Today magazine. A Best of Show trophy, Judge’s Choice trophies, as well a Gold, Silver and Bronze certificates are granted to winning entries exemplifying excellence.  Winning entries must score in the top tiers amongst similar sized organizations.
