The finalists have been revealed for The 3rd Annual Creative Floor Healthcare Awards. The awards were originally established in 2014 by Shaheed Peera with the goal of changing the way award shows are run. In addition to celebrating creative work, the awards also recognize agency people (various roles), clients, and healthcare companies.

Not only are you helping to raise the industry’s creative standards and profile, but you’re also contributing to our Talent and Diversity Fund. The fund will continue to help a generation of untapped talent find their way into health and wellness agencies. Congratulations to all our finalists. We wish them the very best of luck.”
A proportion of profits raised from the awards are put towards helping more diversity and untapped talent into health and wellness communication agencies. In the first two years the Talent Fund has raised over £20,000. The winners of the show decide who gets the money.
