International: The Epica Awards deadline has extended its deadline from October 15 to November 2, to give participants more time to prepare their entries. And as usual, Epica will not charge a late entry fee.
Launched in 1987, Epica is uniquely judged by the press. It gives entrants access to a worldwide community of journalists who write about advertising, design and marketing.
From well-known titles like Campaign and Adweek to specialists in fields ranging from Automotive to VR, an entry to Epica exposes creative work to journalists who have a wide readership among clients and agencies.
Epica is the sister company of AdForum, the global news service and advertising archive, which will also promote the entries.
Independent photographers can enter for just 100 euros. Production companies are given a 100 euro discount on the registration fee.
Winners and selected shortlisted entries will appear in the annual Epica Book, a compendium of creativity edited by ourselves and published by Bloomsbury in London. (The same publisher as Harry Potter, by the way. Creativity truly is a kind of magic.)
Epica is the hub where creativity and journalism meet. It aims to spread the word about great work and inspire reporters who are in search of stories. On this year, of all years, agencies, brands and the press should join forces to celebrate the power of creativity.
