Epica Awards announces venue, jury president
The 32nd Epica Awards will hold its next jury meeting, conference and awards ceremony in Amsterdam, Netherlands, 12–15 November 2018. Tony Chambers, Wallpaper* magazine brand and content director, will be this year’s jury president. The ceremony itself will be held at the city’s KIT Royal Tropical Institute.
“As someone who’s passionate about design, branding and communications, I’m delighted to be able to join fellow journalists in these fields to determine who’s doing the most-innovative creative work right now,” says Chambers.
In addition, two new Grands Prix have been created:
- The Responsibility Grand Prix will honour the best public interest work. It is supported by ACT Responsible, an organisation that supports cause-related advertising.
- The Alternative Media Grand Prix will be awarded to the most-original campaign in non-traditional channels such as ambient, experiential, events and stunts.
There are also two new categories this year:
- Topical & Real Time Advertising, covering operations that react to current events; and
- the return of World Cup Advertising.
