Guests from the worlds of advertising and journalism mingled at the Epica Awards New York Showcase on Thursday evening (February 2nd). The event was hosted by Screen Vision Media at the Cinepolis Chelsea in New York City.
2016 saw the 30th anniversary of the Epica Awards, the only global creative competition judged by journalists who write about marketing and design. The New York Showcase was held to screen the winning entries for those who were unable to attend the ceremony in Amsterdam in November.
“It was a great evening and a pleasure to celebrate the Epica Award winners with our agency partners at our New York Showcase”, said Elizabeth Marks, Global President of Maydream/Epica/AdForum. “I also want to extend a huge thank you to our partner Screenvision Media and the jury members who were able to join us: Norman Pearlstine (Time, Inc.), David Griner (Adweek) and Eric Alt (Co-Create). Your unbiased perspective continues to give the Epica Awards a truly unique and objective voice in the creative industry, a position it has now held for 30 years.”
In 2016 Epica’s jury partners in North American were AdWeek, Co-Create and Strategy. In total more than 60 editors and senior journalists serve on the Epica jury, from Adweek in the US to Werben & Verkaufen in Germany and everywhere in between. The Grand Prix winners in 2016 were “Simplified stories” by DDB Brussels for Alzheimerliga (Design); “The Next Rembrandt” by J. Walter Thompson Amsterdam for ING (Digital); “Kenzo World” for Kenzo World Eau de Parfum by Kenzo Parfums (Film); “Brad is Single” by TRY for Norwegian Airlines (Print); and “Doors of Thrones” by Publicis London for Tourism Ireland (Outdoor).
