Wunderman Thompson agencies in Brazil, Peru, North America, France, Belgium, Colombia and Japan won a total of 15 awards at the 35th rendition of the Epica Awards. It’s the only creative prize awarded by journalists working in the field, i.e., for marketing and communications magazines around the world.
“Since 1987 The Epica Awards have been judged exclusively by journalists who are specialists in their field, providing valuable PR exposure while ensuring objectivity. Congratulations in advance to all the winners,” Epica organizers stated on the website.
They opted for a live-streamed event to create a more even ground for all the participants.
“In recent years we’ve found that a live-streamed event is an efficient and democratic way of reaching a large audience, allowing everybody who watches to celebrate the winning work with us,” said Epica Awards editorial director Mark Tungate. “So on the big day please feel free to pull up a chair, make yourself comfortable – and soak up the inspiration.”
