HEALTHCARE MARKETER’S EXCHANGE HUMANITARIAN AWARD GUIDELINES
The Spirit of the HME Humanitarian Awards
As we celebrate our 25th year, we continue to be amazed by the many ways the people and companies in our industry give back.

We invite you to participate!

The nominee must be currently employed in the healthcare marketing industry, including pharma companies, ad agencies, or service suppliers.
A committee of judges will determine the winners by evaluating the entries anonymously in keeping with a common understanding of the HME Award criteria.
Submitted stories may be included in the November issue of HEALTHCARE MARKETER’S EXCHANGE, both in our hard copy and online magazine editions, as well as through social media platforms. Winners will receive a $1,000 check assigned to their charity of choice.
Please write as much as you like about why you, your company, or another individual deserves the HME Humanitarian Award. Give us the powerful story behind the person or company so the judges understand what motivates the individual or company to give so generously and the full impact of their humanitarian efforts. Take a look at last year’s Humanitarian Awards winners’ and nominees’ stories here.
Note: If you prefer to write your submission in the form of a story, you may do so. Just be sure and answer the questions below within that story.
(What exactly does the nominee do to serve? How much time and effort? Does the nominee lead others in serving?)
We're honoring those who dedicate their time and energy to doing good for others.
