SLOVENIA – Ljubljana hosted the 26th Epica International Creative awards
The city of Ljubljana, together with Cankarjev Dom, Culture & Congress Centre and Slovenia’s leading marketing magazine, MM magazine, on 25 January 2013 were the hosts of 2012 Epica Awards, one of the biggest international creative awards that was the past also hosted by great cities like Brussels, Amsterdam, Moscow, London, Zurich, Du¨sseldorf, Warsaw, Lisbon, Helsinki, Prague, Milan, Dublin, Budapest, Istanbul, Stockholm, Athens, Belgrade and Zagreb.
The competition’s aim is to reward outstanding creativity and help communication agencies, film production companies, media consultancies, photographers and design studios to develop their reputations beyond their national borders.
What sets Epica apart from the rest of creative awards is that the entries are not judged by creatives in the business, but are evaluated by the journalists from 41 specialist trade press titles and dedicated websites.
The one day event was held at a major congress centre located in a very centre of Ljubljana, in Cankarjev Dom, CD Club. It was attended by around 300 Epica guests that came to see the show from Europe, America, Asia and even South Africa. Great marketing and advertising campaign were presented during the conference programme, while the creative excellence was recognised and awarded at the official award ceremony that followed. The 2012 Epica Awards will be remembered by great creative atmosphere, celebration and warm hospitality of the charming capital city.
Ljubljana is proud to be listed among the 19 European cities that throughout history hosted the Epica Awards. The city has once again proved it can rise up to the occasion be a great host of different national and international events.
