Epica Awards for Sri Lanka in August
ECONOMYNEXT – The Epica Awards, an international program to recognise creativity in advertising, design, public relations and digital media will be held for the first time in Sri Lanka in August 2019, the local chapter of the Association of Accredited Advertising Agencies (4As) said.
"Although many local agencies have won recognition at international award shows, as a fraternity we definitely feel the absence of a local platform to showcase work to a jury of international standards, and to engage in healthy competition," 4A President Sugibun Sathiamoorthy said.
"By partnering with Epica Awards, we have the opportunity to organize an international standard event, and to also have a bias-free and objective jury of regional and international journalists to judge all entries.”
The awards started in 1987 has a jury made up of journalists working for more than 200 magazines and websites such as Adweek, Creative Review, Shots, C-NET, and Forbes.
The trade association said the Epica Awards will be held for the first time in South Asia.
The Sri Lankan Epica Awards event will take place on the 16th and 17th of August 2019 and will include a one-and-a-half day conference featuring sessions and workshops by local and international creative industry professionals. (Colombo/Mar19/2019-SB)
