About The CLIO Healthcare Awards

The CLIO Healthcare Awards is an extension of The CLIO Awards, one of the world's most recognized awards competitions for advertising, design and interactive, which celebrated its 50th Anniversary in 2009. Healthcare accounts for more than one-third of the U.S. gross national product. It has become one of the most visible sectors of advertising, promotion and creative design in the last few years, particularly on TV and online, but is regulated differently and more stringently than traditional advertising and promotion.

The CLIO Healthcare Awards will be executed using the same rigorous standards and commitment to excellence as the CLIO Awards, but levels the playing field to qualify and judge this particular and massive industry sector more fairly and appropriately. The CLIO Awards and CLIO Healthcare Awards are produced by Nielsen Business Media, a part of The Nielsen Company, a global information and media company.
