NB! Since all Gold and Grand Prix winning entries will be submitted to EPICA festival free of charge, the winners will be able to enter two festivals for the price of one!
Who can participate?
The competition is open to advertising and marketing agencies, their clients, media agencies, filmmakers, photographers, design studios and individuals from small European countries with a population of under 5 million people.
The reason is simple – we have to compare what is comparable. Small countries face similar challenges: limited budgets, small teams, and high price sensitivity. We are convinced that, despite the limited resources, there are BIG ideas in small countries:
• Bosnia and Herzegovina
• San Marino
