Why Enter Epica

Why enter Epica

2016 will see the 30th edition of the annual Epica Awards. Epica is unique in the crowded awards sector. It is the only international creative prize judged by the marketing and communications press. We like to think of it as the Golden Globes® of the communications industry.

Thanks to our jury of journalists from around the world, the Epica Awards receive international press coverage.

From the very start, Epica’s goal has been to reward outstanding creativity and help agencies, production companies, consultancies, photographers and design studios develop their reputations beyond their national borders.

Epica allows you to see how your work is viewed by a different kind of audience – not your industry colleagues, but seasoned reporters who love and understand commercial creativity.

It offers a chance to be included in the Epica Book, a beautiful bible of creativity, published by Bloomsbury in London and sent out to all entrants, as well as journalists, clients and VIPs. The book is also sold at selected art and design bookstores around the world.

In addition, Epica is one of the prizes taken into consideration by the organizations that monitor advertising awards throughout the year and come up with the overall winners at the end – the year’s creative supernovas.

Finally, as the Epica ceremony is traditionally hosted in a different city every year, it’s a chance to visit somewhere you may not have been lately, if at all. And travel, as you know, is great for creativity.
