The Netherlands has been nominated 27 times on the Epica shortlist 2020. Nominated cases come from Joe Public, 72andsunny, Ambassadors, Brandbase, Halal, Persuade, Ogilvy and Mediamonks.
This year, Epica received 1980 entries from 59 countries. This number was lower than in previous years, but higher than expected given the corona conditions.
The jury of journalists saw and viewed all submissions and then voted via an online voting platform. The finalists will advance to the next voting round that will take place online from 2 to 8 December next. The finale will be followed by an online show on December 17th. Epica would like to thank all the agencies, manufacturing companies, creative talents and clients who supported the awards in this difficult year.
