This is a very special year as it marks Epica's 30th anniversary, with a full-day conference and an awards show in Amsterdam.
EPICA-trade-press.jpgAs the only global creative awards judged by journalists who write about advertising and marketing - including Campaign Brief for Australia and NZ - the Epica Awards allow agencies to show their work to a unique group of people who can spread the word about their creative talent. As well as agency and network of the year Epica will also be announcing agency of the year by region.

This year, more than 60 editors and senior journalists will serve on the Epica jury, hailing from Adweek in the US to Werben & Verkaufen in Germany and everywhere in between, including CB in Australia and New Zealand. Click here to see the full jury member list.

As always, every agency that entered will get a free copy of the annual Epica Book - a 400-page bible of creative inspiration.
