YMyHealth’s focus on fitness and our COVID-19 series, Stories from the Field, caught the attention of judges in the 2022 Hermes Creative Awards Competition.
Hermes Creative Awards is an international competition for creative professionals involved in the concept, writing, and design of traditional and emerging media. The awards recognize outstanding work in the industry while promoting the philanthropic nature of marketing and communication professionals. The competition is administered by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals.
I am excited to announce that we have received a Platinum Award in the Web Writing/Content category for our COVID-19 Stories from the Field story, Racing to Find a Treatment: How An Infectious Disease Doctor is Applying Clinical Research to Find Ways for Decreasing COVID-19’s Impact on American Lives.
The story features millennial, infectious disease doctor, Amy Sherman and her experience as a physician-scientist working on the front lines during the pandemic to care for patients and help find effective treatments for COVID-19. The Platinum Award is the competition’s highest honor.
It is symbolized by the intricately detailed Hermes Platinum Award. The name Hermes (Greek messenger) and the idea for the award were chosen to represent our roles as the messengers and creators of marketing and communication materials and programs.
YMyHealth have also received an Honorable Mention in the category of Blog Single Post for a story from our Making a Healthy Office Comeback series. Our blog post, Virtual Fitness Meets Reality: How COVID-19 and Millennials Are Changing the Meaning of Working Out, features millennial fitness trainer, Brittany Noelle, and her expertise on the ways fitness and workouts have changed as more millennials transitioned to working from home.
The 2022 Hermes Creative Awards competition received about 6,500 entries from throughout the United States and 27 other countries. About 16 percent of entries won Platinum, the top award, around 22 percent the Gold Award, and approximately 9 percent took Honorable Mention.
As always, we appreciate our viewers and readers support and welcome your feedback.
