The Pharmacy Excellence Awards have been over a year in preparation and our aim is to make them the Awards for the sector and to be an occasion of which the pharmacists, owners and managers and key suppliers to the sector really want to be a part. Even so, we know that in the first year, there may be omissions – in the Categories, for instance – and we are happy to accept constructive criticism that will enable us to make the Awards even more representative of this vibrant sector in subsequent years.

The Category list is not overburdened with wordy criteria. We believe in being less prescriptive, preferring you to tell your story in your own way. All we ask is that you use the basic template of headings in your submission document, which you can find on the Advice tab. This helps the judges when comparing entries and it helps the process of marking, ensuring allocations of marks to each aspect of a submission are awarded with consistency.

We look forward to receiving your entries and wish you well with your submissions.

Key dates:

October 1: Call for entries commences

March 31: Closing date for entries

April: Judging

End of April: Deadline for announcement of short-listed Finalists

July 12: Awards lunch and ceremony. Venue to be decided


Time is always precious and sometimes writing an entry submission is one of those jobs put off until the last moment. For a helping hand to write your awards entries contact:  (UK & Europe)
