The Epica Jury is made up of journalists. Not just any journalists. They are all editors and senior reporters working for marketing and communications magazines around the world.

So when it comes to judging work submitted to Epica, they have not only the fresh perspective of the public, but also the expert eye of professionals who've spent years observing the advertising industry.

The Epica awards ceremony and International Creative Conference will again take place in Ljubljana. It will be held at the Cankarjev Dom Culture & Congress Centre on Friday, January 25th, 2013. A full programme of speakers and topics will be announced at a later date. The event will be hosted by Slovenia's MM magazine.

The annual Epica ceremony has now been held in 19 different cities: Brussels, Amsterdam, Moscow, London, Zurich, Düsseldorf, Warsaw, Lisbon, Helsinki, Prague, Milan, Dublin, Budapest, Istanbul, Stockholm, Athens, Belgrade, Zagreb and Ljubljana.
