A modest return for New Zealand at Epica 2017, with Colenso BBDO and Augusto the only Kiwis to win metal in Berlin. Both agencies scored Bronzes – Colenso’s was a Film award for Spark Little Can Be Huge – Celebrate Family in the Communication & Public Services category.
Augusto’s was also a Bronze – in Graphic Design for AIG Lions Tour Event Mark.
McCann Worldgroup as named Network of the Year and BBDO New York was named Agency of the Year.
Founded 31 years ago, Epica is the only worldwide creative award judged by journalists from the marketing, design and advertising press, including M+AD ed David Gapes.
This year Epica received 3350 entries from 71 countries, down on the previous year due to the Publicis awards hiatus and a lower participation by WPP agencies.
New: Pakistan, Kenya
This was counterbalanced by twice as many entries from China and Taiwan, 50% more from Malaysia and three times as many from Poland. New countries this year included Pakistan and Kenya.
