Sanofi sponsored the Editor of the Year category at the 2017 MJA Awards.  Judges said it was a very tough call between three very different entries, but the award for Editor of the Year went to Nigel Praities, Editor of Pulse. They praised his strong campaigns and ability to champion his audience effectively. “Very tenacious.” Lilian Anekwe, Deputy Editor of Chemist and Druggist (C+D) and Justine Hancock, Editor Daily Mail Good Health were both highly commended.  Judges said Lilian took on a big challenge taking the brand from print to digital. “Very impressive.” They thought Justine’s pages were “consistently compelling, well presented and well researched. She has produced some agenda-setting campaigns.”
