Havas Lynx shines at prestigious IPA Best of Health Awards


Leading healthcare creative agency, Havas Lynx, has once again shown its fighting form, scooping a raft of big wins at the world-renowned IPA Best of Health Awards, held last night at London’s Wellcome Collection Museum.

The trail-blazing, international healthcare agency picked up a phenomenal five awards –  comprising of two Silvers for sister agency, Havas Life’s powerful Change the Face of HIV campaign, Bronze for Sun Safety on Site poster campaign and two Bronzes for B!RTH at the Royal Exchange.

The IPA (Institute of Practitioners in Advertising) Best of Health Show Awards celebrates the best creativity in international healthcare advertising, embracing the promotion of brands to both healthcare professionals and consumers. Now in its twentieth year, the annual Award event brings together the crème de la crème of talent within the healthcare advertising industry.

The awards are steered by the IPA Healthcare Group, comprised of a number of IPA member healthcare agencies who look to identify, develop and promote best practice in the industry.

Last night’s wins are the culmination of an unprecedented year for Havas Lynx, bringing its total number of awards this year to 29, including five gold awards at the PM Society Awards, two wins at the Creative Circle Awards, four golds at the Roses Creative Awards, and two wins for H4B Manchester; a gold at the Communiqué Awards and a win at Clio Health Awards for The World vs.MS. The agency was also one of the few which managed to get shortlisted for pharma campaigns at the Cannes Lions Health Awards.

Commenting on its success at the IPA Awards, Havas Lynx CCO, Tom Richards, said:

“We’re absolutely blown away by our achievements at these prestigious awards, which as always, showcase exceptional, inspiring work from across the world.

“Our commitment to attracting and nurturing outstanding creative talent remains our number one priority. Thanks also to our close partnerships and alliances with healthcare professionals, patients and carers, we’ve shown yet again that we’re a force to be reckoned with on an international scale.

“As always, we’re thankful for the trust our clients place in us, and we look forward to continuing to bring to life the healthcare innovations they develop.”
