This year more than 7,000 votes were cast to decide the winners.
“Our Pharma Choice Awards continue to be very popular not just because they allow everyone in the industry to have some fun and vote on their favorite campaigns from the past year,” says Anna Stashower, CEO and Publisher of PM360, “but because people take great pride in winning an award based on the approval of their peers. Plus, seeing the winners provides a lot of inspiration for people as they get back to work in the New Year ready to hit the ground running.”
A Gold, Silver, and Bronze award is given to the top three vote-getters in each of the 14 distinct categories.
