Winners from last year’s awards
With the highest number of entries received for more than a decade along with top comedy talent host, Sally Phillips, of Miranda, Bridget Jones’ Diary and Smack the Pony fame – to name but a few, the VMA Annual Awards event was set to be one of the best yet…. and it certainly was!
Held on March 15th 2019 at the 5-star Royal Lancaster London Hotel, the ceremony was attended by over 320 animal health and veterinary industry guests who were treated to a champagne reception followed by a fabulous four course meal, with prizes on offer from sponsors Noble Futures, Virtual Recall and Pegasus before the winners of the prestigious Awards were announced.
Chair of the Awards Claire Edmunds says: “Following feedback from last year’s awards, and as part of our continued commitment to making the awards even better each year, this year we focussed on improving the entry and judging process. Entrants were provided with clear and detailed entry criteria as well as examples of good and bad entry boards with judge’s top tips.
”The introduction of an online judging phase opened entries to a considerably wider demographic of judges from across the industry and from around the UK, with diverse skill sets, experience and expertise, gender, age and geographic locations,” adds Claire.
“At the second face to face stage a smaller team of judges then discussed and debated the shortlisted finalists to determine the winners. Judges were consistently impressed with the work submitted and with the highest number of entries received in more than a decade all finalists should be really proud of their achievement.”
The VMA would like to extend a big thank you to all the entrants, judges sponsors and guests on the day for making the 2018 Awards so enjoyable!
