These finalists will go through to the next round of voting, which takes place online from 2-8 December.

Gold and Grand Prix winners will be screened during a special online ceremony on 17 December 17. More details to follow shortly.

Silver and Bronze winners will be published on the Epica Awards website the next day, 18 December.

This year Epica received 1980 entries from 59 countries. This was lower than previous years, but higher than expected given the circumstances. The highest number of entries came from Russia, followed by Germany. In terms of networks, Wunderman Thompson and BBDO were particularly well represented.

Epica congratulates all the shortlisted entrants. The eventual winners and a selection of high-scoring entries will be featured in our annual Epica Book, which will be released in September 2021.

The Epica jury is composed of editors and senior reporters from the world’s leading titles covering creativity and communications. They are supported by journalists from specialist fields such as post-production, VR, design, luxury and fashion. A full list of jury members can be seen at
