The Epica Awards Opens for Entries for 2020

The only global creative award judged by the press has opened for entries offering a €100 “early bird” discount until August 31st.

As they face rocky economic times in the months ahead, the press and the advertising industry need each other more than ever. The press benefits from advertising revenue while giving brands a platform for their paid and earned messages.

Epica allows the press to celebrate creativity – so we felt it was essential that the competition went ahead in an effort to thrive and survive despite the crisis. Our international jury of editors and senior reporters from titles such as Adweek, Campaign, Creative Review, Horizont, Stratégies, Branding in Asia and Shots are all on board. Epica covers advertising, design, PR, and digital.


From July 1 to August 31 there’s an early bird discount of €100. Entries will close on October 31, but the period may be extended if we decide to hold an online-only jury. The date of the ceremony has yet to be confirmed.

At the request of jury members, we’ve introduced a free-to-enter category for campaigns relating to the COVID-19 pandemic. All proceeds from this category will be donated to Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders).

“We know this is going to be a tough year,” said Epica Awards editorial director Mark Tungate. “Agencies are suffering. But it’s also true that there has been an explosion of creativity as governments and brands communicate messages concerning health and safety, support, and solidarity. The journalists on our jury are keen to honor this work as well as the other great work from the preceding months.”


They’re also keen to write about it, reinforcing Epica’s natural PR advantage. Creativity is working harder than ever. Let’s spread the news.
