During the pandemic, doctors, nurses, nursing home staff and other frontline workers have faced long hours, safety equipment shortages and financial issues on top of the stress of lockdowns and facing an unknown virus.

For this initiative, we’re calling on the industry to submit creative that advocates better support and resources for all those in the HCP community.

MM+M has run several such campaigns in the past, on topics ranging from flattening the curve to ending gun violence to creating health equity.

Submissions will be open until October 2, 2020 at 11:59pm ET. Select submissions will run in print. All submissions will run online. Click here to be redirected to the submission page.

Submission Options:

1. Single JPEG

  • No specific dimensions
  • Can be a single jpeg that contains multiple versions of a creative campaign such as a subway ad, next to a digital campaign, next to a page of an eBook, etc. See past initiatives linked below for examples of how this was done.
  • Should include a caption
  • No PDFs

2. YouTube Video
