The IPA Best of Health awards is a well respected creative awards ceremony for media communications aimed at healthcare professionals or messages to consumers about healthcare. The team judging the work are led by top healthcare creatives and they recognise that healthcare advertising can save lives and it is therefore important to recognise that engaging with people with these messages requires a great deal of creativity from agencies.

In last year’s awards, Mother Advertising was given ‘Best of Show’ for their campaign for Frank, the Government’s anti-drug helpline and website which ran across mixed media. Entries will be judged from press, outdoor, TV, online and mixed media campaigns and the awards will take place on the 24th June 2010.

For businesses in the Leith area who are looking for creative and media campaigns, there are agencies in the area that can help, and also print companies in Leith who can offer poster, direct mail and leaflet printing.
