The Epica awards were created in 1987 and celebrated their 25th anniversary last year. Having originally focused on Europe only, the awards will become worldwide in 2012.
Epica’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.

The awards are judged by journalists representing the trade press; 41 specialist titles and websites from 34 countries will be represented on the jury this year, including 6 new titles from Canada, India, Singapore, China, Australia and the Philippines. This unique jury guarantees objectivity and widespread coverage of the results. The best work is also published in the annual Epica Book.

English Description
The 90 second spot tracks the evolving relationship, from the moment a protective father first brings his daughter home from hospital, sheltering her and her mother from the rain under his jacket, to the day she finally leaves home, when he hands her the keys to a shiny new Polo - ensuring she ‘stays in safe hands’.
