The New York Festivals Health Awards announced the 2023 Executive Jury, a brain trust of some of the most respected thought-leaders within the healthcare space, will gather together to judge and honor the best work within the industry.

This year, the newly rebranded NYF Health Awards will resume face-to-face live Executive Jury sessions with some of healthcare’s most innovative creatives from top-tier healthcare agencies. 

The 2023 jury panel is populated with award-winning highly esteemed creative leaders whose teams are responsible for some of the most groundbreaking work within healthcare/pharmaceutical advertising.

Adam Hessel, Chief Creative Officer for Ogilvy Health New York will preside over the live judging panel. He brings years of creative leadership experience and a 360-degree perspective of work in the pharma, health, and wellness arenas. Adam has been an integral figure in the evolution of what creative looks like in the healthcare space. His history of award-winning work has garnered many of the industry’s top awards with Adam himself recently being internationally ranked #1 by Lürzer’s Archive.

Together, without distraction the Executive Jury will thoughtfully judge work from both healthcare and pharma categories that have achieved shortlist status as judged by the online Grand Jury. The Live Executive Jury sessions will take place in April in New York City
