Sanofi is delighted to be sponsoring the Blogger of the Year category at the 2018 MJA Awards.

Sanofi have been supporters of the MJA Awards for several years having previously sponsored the Editor of the Year category in 2017 and the News Story of the Year (specialist audience) in 2016.

Nigel Praities, Editor of Pulse, won the award last year with judges praising 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.”
