The Global Awards, honoring creative and marketing excellence in worldwide healthcare communications, has announced the Finalists for the 2012 competition, with 177 Finalists making the cut from 17 countries around the globe.
 
Asia's healthcare agencies received 12 Finalist nominations in this year's Global Awards.

McCann Health Singapore and McCann Health Communications/McCann Worlgroup Japan each earned 3 Finalists; McCann Healthcare China received 2 Finalists; Beacon Communications k.k Japan, McCann Worldgroup Japan, Epigram Singapore and Moving Bits USA Inc all received 1 finalist.

The 2012 Global Awards received entries from 21 countries and conducted judging sessions worldwide and online. Live judging sessions were hosted by CAHG Chicago, USA; Fine Healthcare Johannesburg, South Africa; Global Healthcare Barcelona, Spain; McCann Health London; and Saatchi & Saatchi Health Sydney. The Global Awards also hosted live sessions in New York City.
 
All nominated Finalists go on to the secondary round of judging to determine medalists.
 
Grand Jury Member Chet Moss, EVP/Chief Creative Officer ICC Lowe had this to say about this year's Global Awards Finalists: "Tactical. Experiential. Environmental. Socially-aware, socially-conscious, socially-active. Those were the hallmarks of the 2012 Global Awards for me. Much of the work leaped from the confines of print and tablet screens into ideas that audiences could actually experience, even encounter. And provide a different level of engagement. This is the human interaction that works across all cultures and underscores why the Globals represent a different way to honor work."
 
The 2012 Global Awards will host two global celebrations this year taking place in two international cities: Sydney and New York. The 2012 Global Awards winners will be officially announced at both award shows on December 6th.
 
"The Global Awards has the history and the credentials to continue to be the must-enter awards show if you are in any way proud of the healthcare work you have produced. Now in its fifth year, Bravo! gives Global Award winners and finalists the chance to celebrate their success in front of their peers and clients here in Australia," says June Laffey, Executive Creative Director McCann Health, Sydney and Global Awards Grand Jury Member.
 
The Global Awards Advisory Board, headed by Board Chairman Tom Domanico and the Grand Jury are comprised of a panel of prominent international industry experts, representing the top creative minds in the field of healthcare advertising.
 
Now in its 18th year, The Global Awards receives entries from healthcare corporations, hospitals, advertising agencies, production companies, and design studios that produce communications for medical, pharmaceutical, and healthcare related products and services.
