If you want to be a winner, hang around with winners 

Ok, that's it. If you haven't entered by now, you're too late.

I am, of course, once again, talking about the inaugural BMJ Industry Award. Can you tell I'm a little bit excited about these?

Having closed to door to entry and nomination, the team is beavering away getting the nominations loaded to the special voting page which will be live next week.

So those of you who have entered or been nominated (A list of who has been nominated in each category is available for download here) then get busy letting all your staff, colleagues and supplier know. This is the only industry awards that are voted for by the people who know best, the people working in it every day. If you want the chance to walk away with the top prize on Friday May 18th,  . then get drumming up support.

Awards events aren’t just about the networking opportunities, though that is a big part of their appeal for all of us. They are also about celebrating what is great and good about your industry, which is why BMJ felt that we wanted to offer something along the same lines, but with enough differences to make it complementary rather than conflicting.

In any case, if you aren’t doing anything else that day and you want to get in some serious networking with the great and the good and even the rest of us, then get on the website and book yourself a table  (here!!). Bring your friends. Come and have fun on Friday May 18th at the Brewery, Chiswell Street, London.
