Manny Awards

Med Ad News Recognizes the Healthcare Communications Industry at the 2016 Manny Awards

LIVINGSTON, N.J., April 22, 2016 – Med Ad News, the leading pharmaceutical business and marketing publication, announces the winners for the 2016 Manny Awards, celebrating the best in healthcare advertising. The black-tie gala affair took place last night at Pier Sixty in New York City with 500 people in attendance. Twenty awards were bestowed throughout the night to healthcare agencies achieving excellence in a variety of categories.

Med Ad News launched an additional level of judging to the voting process for the 2016 creative awards with the MedAdvocate panel of jurors. The first round of voting took place online through the Manny Awards site with lead creative directors and presidents from eligible healthcare communications agencies casting their votes for the best creative work. From that process, three agency finalists were determined for each creative award category. A panel of experts called MedAdvocates were assigned specific campaigns and tasked to initiate meaningful dialog amongst the jurors in a casual working-dinner environment. From those discussions, the MedAdvocates scored each finalist campaign using a point system that, combined with the popular vote conducted online, arrived at the eventual winners.

Ed Mitzen, founder of Fingerpaint, was recognized as Med Ad News’ Industry Person of the Year. Ed has successfully launched three healthcare marketing companies totaling more than $300 million in combined revenue. Fingerpaint, is a full-service marketing agency with 135 employees, three locations and nearly $30 million in annual revenue. Breaking from the typical ad agency paradigm, Ed launched this employee-owned company with the mantra, “No titles, no offices, no egos.” The collaborative work culture has generated award-winning creative and explosive growth, with Inc. magazine ranking Fingerpaint on its List of America’s 5,000 Fastest Growing Companies for the past three years. Before starting Fingerpaint, Ed founded two other healthcare marketing firms – Palio Communications and CHS.

Category I Agency of the Year honors went to Intouch Solutions. Category I is for agencies with annual revenue exceeding $50 million. Leadership from Intouch Solutions summed up the agency’s 2015 performance as “high growth, high- tech, and high science.” The independent firm celebrated reaching a major milestone of more than $100 million in income for the year. Intouch Solutions added 86 employees in 2015, representing an impressive 43 percent growth in staff in just three years. The agency additionally captured more than 40 creative awards and landed 32 account wins last year.

Concentric Health Experience was recognized as the Category II Agency of the Year, which is for those advertising shops generating annual revenue between $25 million and $50 million. 2015 shattered all previous records for Concentric, with overall growth of 75 percent, an increase in global staff of 65 percent to 226 employees, and a 75 percent new business winning percentage with nine of 12 pitches won. The agency deployed 13 integrated creative campaigns and launched 4 brands throughout the year. Concentric has now won Agency of the Year for two consecutive years after claiming Category III honors in 2015 for agencies with less than $25 million in income.

 

New York-based Centron was awarded Category III Agency of the Year status in 2016. Centron celebrated its 10-year anniversary during 2015, and agency leadership said that milestone was used as an opportunity to reflect on how to best position the agency for the future of healthcare. With an evolving landscape, management recognized the need to realign leadership, vision, and resources to maximize emerging opportunities. Centron’s successes during last year – launches and new business wins – were fueled by the strength of the agency’s fully integrated approach.

 

AbelsonTaylor, HCB Health, and Juice Pharma Worldwide were jointly presented the Med Ad News Heart Award. The award is designed to recognize agencies’ social responsibility and agency cultures that embody a high commitment to philanthropic and social causes. Those three healthcare communications agencies came together to create a wide new range of possibilities for the ever-growing Health and MedTech Track at South by Southwest. This experimental program required all of the agency partners, along with MIT Hacking Medicine, to work as one team to rethink healthcare. Juice Pharma’s Robert Palmer and Alec Pollak were organizers and speakers at the MIT HackMed Health House at SXSW Health and MedTech 2016 – along with partners Mark Bard of the Digital Health Coalition and fellow independent agency collaborators AbelsonTaylor and HCB Health. 

This year’s Vision Award recipient was Harrison and Star. The Vision Award recognizes the idea, concept, or initiative that best exemplifies the healthcare communications agency of the future. The Med Ad News editorial staff reviewed which new idea, concept, or initiative launched by an agency during the past year could have the greatest potential to transform the industry in a positive way and what was the most interesting and insightful step forward of the year. Harrison and Star partnered pro bono with neurologist Stephen Krieger, M.D., to develop a new model of MS disease course for educational purposes. Dr. Krieger’s novel hypothesis maps disability accumulation to patients’ underlying disease topography. Harrison and Star created a customizable app using gaming technology to dynamically simulate MS disease activity and progression.

The Best Launch Campaign honor went to TBWA\WorldHealth for Harvoni, which is marketed by Gilead Sciences. With an idea that nodded to the Sovaldi campaign of “Advancing what’s possible,” the new Harvoni campaign was at once empowering and activating; it asked healthcare professionals to be the one to change what is possible – be the one to cure patients with the single-tablet regimen Harvoni. In 2014, what was then known as CAHG (and then became Corbett, which recently was combined with LLNS into the new agency TBWA\WorldHealth) won the Best Brand Team Manny Award for Sovaldi. Gilead’s hepatitis C treatments Sovaldi and Harvoni represent two of the top-selling pharmaceutical product launches in industry history. 

The voting community for the 2016 Manny Awards strongly agreed that Area 23’s creative work was worthy of numerous accolades, including Most Creative Agency for the second consecutive year. The New York-based shop captured Best Professional Campaign for the cancer medicine Alecensa “Go Beyond Barriers” work. Area 23’s Never Stop Improving campaign on behalf of BD was voted the best in the Medical Devices category. Winning the Best Interactive Patient Campaign was Area 23 for The Silent Era in recognition of prostate cancer. The agency’s N=You work about making lifestyle change for diabetes was the winner for Best Interactive Physician Campaign. Area 23 was also recognized in voting by its peers as the Most Admired Agency Manny Award winner.

There were plenty of other agency winners for the creative award categories, including GSW for Pradaxa “Redfish” as the Best Consumer Campaign. GSW was also awarded the Best Philanthropic Campaign for Sexy Men of Technology, which encouraged men to do something about their health in a fun and memorable way.

McCann HumanCare was the recipient of the Best Nonbranded Campaign for Keep It Pumping, focused on heart failure patients.

Klick Health came through with the Best Self-Promotional Campaign Manny Award for MUSE, a modern-day salon and exciting alternative to traditional industry conferences. MUSE unites the worlds of science, art, and technology to inspire and connect business professionals in a way that is as inspirational as the advances that technology has been making in health.

There were two new Manny Awards introduced for this year’s show: Best Managed Markets Campaign and Best Point-of-Care Campaign. The Bloc won the Managed Markets category with its Regeneron: Driving Member Activation campaign in support of diabetic patients. Juice Pharma’s Level With Me work for hemophilia was the recipient of the Best Point-of-Care Campaign accolade.

The gala affair concluded with the Best Video Submission, which was voted on via text messaging by the Manny Award attendees for their favorite video compiled by all of the agency finalists for every award category. GSW was recognized for their creativity.

The 2016 Manny Awards sponsors included Platinum sponsor McCann Health; and Gold sponsors: The Bloc, Calcium, Centron, Concentric Health Experience, Dudnyk, Guidemark Health and Intouch Solutions.

Med Ad News Assembles MedAdvocates and Announces Finalists for the 2016 Manny Awards as well as Industry Person of the Year, Ed Mitzen of Fingerpaint

LIVINGSTON N.J., March 23, 2016 – Med Ad News, the leading pharmaceutical business and marketing publication, announces the nominees for the 27th Annual Manny Awards, celebrating the best in pharmaceutical and healthcare advertising, and announces Ed Mitzen as the Industry Person of the Year. The Manny Awards annual gala event celebrates creative excellence in healthcare advertising and communications. More than 600 industry peers are expected to join Med Ad News in honoring winners across 20 total award categories, including the year's Most Creative Agency, Most Admired Agency, Best Launch Campaign, Agency of the Year I, II and III, and more. The Manny Awards ceremony will be held on Thursday, April 21, 2016, at Pier Sixty at Chelsea Piers in New York City.

The Manny Awards also continues its tradition of honoring the agency community for their exceptional forward thinking and philanthropic efforts. The Vision Award recognizes exceptional ideas and initiatives that have the power to transform the way that healthcare communications agencies do business. The Heart Award was created by the Med Ad News editorial staff to recognize agencies' social responsibility and commitment to philanthropic and social causes. All three finalists selected will receive a cash donation to their respective causes.

Med Ad News introduced an additional level of review voting process in 2016, rolling out the MedAdvocate panel of jurors. The first round of voting took place online, via the Manny Awards voting site, and included selections from over 100 eligible voters across healthcare communication agencies. In order to take a deeper dive into the finalist campaigns, a panel of experts dubbed “MedAdvocates” were each assigned specific campaigns and tasked to initiate meaningful dialog amongst the jurors. MedAdvocates were selected based on their creative expertise and widely recognized performance within the industry. Ultimately, the team scored each finalist campaign using a point system that, combined with the popular vote conducted online, arrived at the eventual winners to be crowned on April 21, 2016.

Med Ad News is pleased to also recognize Ed Mitzen, Founder of Fingerpaint. Ed has successfully launched three different healthcare marketing companies totaling over $300 million in combined revenue. His current company, Fingerpaint, is a full-service marketing agency with 135 employees, three locations and nearly $30 million in annual revenue. Breaking from the typical ad agency paradigm, Ed launched this employee-owned company with the mantra, “no titles, no offices, no egos.” The collaborative work culture has generated award-winning creative and explosive growth. In fact, Inc. magazine has ranked Fingerpaint on their List of America’s 5,000 Fastest Growing Companies for the last three years.

Before forming Fingerpaint, Ed founded two other healthcare marketing firms:  Palio Communications and CHS. With this vast experience in healthcare advertising, it’s no surprise that he has been a key player in the marketing endeavors for more than 50 healthcare clients.

Ed is a firm believer in giving back. He is a frequent lecturer at several top colleges and universities and serves on the board of directors of many not-for-profit organizations, including The Hyde Collection, Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC), the Capital Region Chamber of Commerce, and the Double H Ranch. He has even created a branch of Fingerpaint dedicated exclusively to philanthropic efforts.

It’s hard not to notice Ed’s impact on the healthcare industry. He is living proof that nice guys can finish first.

Med Ad News Announces Finalists for the 2015 Manny Awards as well as Industry Person of the Year, Joshua Prince, and recognizes Cycle for Survival’s Battle Against Rare Cancers

LIVINGSTON, NJ--(Marketwired - Mar 20, 2015) - Med Ad News, the leading pharmaceutical business and marketing publication, announces the nominees for the 26th Annual Manny Awards, A Rare Event, celebrating the best in pharmaceutical and healthcare advertising, and announces Joshua Prince as the Industry Person of the Year. The Manny Awards annual gala event celebrates creative excellence in healthcare advertising and communications. More than 600 industry peers are expected to join Med Ad News in honoring winners across eight creative award categories, in addition to naming the year's Most Creative Agency, Most Admired Agency, Brand Team of the Year, Agency of the Year I, II and III, and Best Video Submission. The Manny Awards ceremony will be held on Thursday, April 23, 2015, at Pier Sixty at Chelsea Piers in New York City.

The Manny Awards also continues its tradition of honoring the agency community for their exceptional forward thinking and philanthropic efforts. The Vision Award recognizes exceptional ideas and initiatives that have the power to transform the way that healthcare communications agencies do business. The Heart Award was created by the Med Ad Newseditorial staff to recognize agencies' social responsibility and commitment to philanthropic and social causes. All three finalists selected will receive a cash donation to their respective causes.

This year, Med Ad News will recognize Cycle for Survival, the national, community-led movement to beat rare cancers. About half of all cancer patients are fighting a rare cancer, and they often face limited or no treatment options. Since 2007, Cycle for Survival has raised more than $76 million through its signature indoor team cycling events across the U.S. to help fund pioneering rare cancer research led by Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, which owns and operates Cycle for Survival. Together with the movement's founding partner, Equinox, Cycle for Survival has supported innovative clinical trials, research studies, and major research initiatives. 100 percent of every donation funds rare cancer research.

Med Ad News is pleased to also recognize Josh Prince, President of the CDM Group, as the 2015 Industry Person of the Year. Josh possesses a rare ability to not only drive our industry forward, but also do it all in a way that leaves nothing but motivated and grateful people in his wake. Before becoming President of the CDM Group in 2013, he spent the bulk of his previous years as Creative Director. In that role, he had a direct hand in some of the most iconic work and notable brands in the industry, most notably, Viagra. More recently, Josh founded the groundbreaking partnership between the CDM Group and the consumer agency BBDO. The partnership, called HealthWork, draws on the deep scientific experience of the CDM Group, and the extraordinary consumer prowess of BBDO, to deliver completely integrated direct-to-consumer campaigns, including the highly awarded Tamiflu spot. Josh also worked across pharmaceutical companies in his leadership of the breakthrough campaign for PhRMA's "Partnership for Prescription Assistance" effort to help Americans with little or no insurance get their medicines.

The honor recognizes Prince's business leadership and commitment to the healthcare communications industry; he was chosen based in part on the testimonials of current and former employees, agency peers, and industry clients who praised his leadership skills, infectious charisma, creative vision, boundless energy, extreme intelligence, and as the ultimate developer of professional colleagues.
