Short fast news from Epica Awards.
Our heartfelt thanks to everyone who’s entered work for the Epica Awards during this challenging period. The team at Epica and our sister organisation AdForum genuinely appreciate your support. For those who’d like to enter but need more time, we’re delighted to announce a deadline extension to November 16.
Final deadline -> enter now.
Epica is the only global awards show judged by journalists and a genuine PR opportunity. This year’s jury includes newcomers such as Entrepreneur and Forbes (for business categories) as well as Communicate (UAE), alongside regular participants Adweek, Campaign (UK, Turkey and India), Creative Review, Shots and many of their equivalents around the world.
One of the big prizes up for grabs is the Responsibility Grand Prix, sponsored for the third year running by ACT Responsible. ACT stands for Advertising Community Together. Its mission is to share good practices and inspire and unite the advertising industry around social responsibility and sustainable development.
The Grand Prix will be chosen from the winners of our Public Interest categories, including the new Covid-19 Communications category.
We know there has been some debate around pandemic-related entries, but as our editorial director and jury host Mark Tungate put it: “Ignoring an entire chapter of advertising history is exactly the opposite of what our jury of journalists is here for. They are keen to reward and write about work that has helped communities during this crisis.”
