The Global Awards Honor The World's Best Healthcare Advertising in New York City & Sydney

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Sep 28, 2011) - The Global Awards®, honoring "The World's Best Healthcare Advertising™" announced that it will honor the 2011 Global Award winners at an awards ceremony on Thursday, December 1st, 2011 in New York City. The event will take place at the Helen Mills event venue located at 137 West 26th Street (between 6th and 7th Avenues). The celebration will begin with a cocktail reception and attendees will view a print and video showcase of the 2011 award-winning work. Michael Demetriades, Global Awards Executive Director, and Tom Domanico, Global Awards Advisory Board Chairman & Draft FCB Healthcare Chairman Emeritus, will present trophies.

"Each year that I've had the privilege to serve as Global Awards Chairman, I've noticed that the level of creativity has improved. Last year's work was top notch and I expect this year's to be even better. We recently launched several new categories mirroring the evolving trends in healthcare communications, I hope to see the number of submissions increase in those categories and that our tasks as judges become more difficult to select the best work in each category."

"The folks in Australia have held successful awards shows for several years now, so last year we decided why not continue the tradition and hold one in New York to honor the winning work and its creators. It resulted in a wonderful evening that was enjoyed by all," commented Mr. Domanico.

The Global Awards, and Bravo!, a group of Australian Healthcare professionals, will also host a Global Awards ceremony in Sydney, Australia. The gala will take place on Thursday, December 1st, 2011 at Simmer on the Bay, located in Sydney's historic Rocks district. Global award winners and their guests will view a showcase of the award-winning print and video, followed by an award ceremony hosted by The Global Awards and Bravo!, with representation from healthcare agencies and the Communications Council of Australia.

"There is so much good work being done on both sides of the globe by healthcare advertising professionals. We want to celebrate the winners by hosting galas in two international cities, New York and Sydney; this gives winners and guests the opportunity to attend the event that is most convenient," said Mr. Demetriades.
