New Zealand agency Yarn has made the cut at the shortlist stage of the 2023 Epica Awards represented by Campaign Brief in Australia and New Zealand.


The agency has been shortlisted for Hell Pizza ‘AfterLife Pay’ in the Restaurants, Bars & Cafés category.

Winners are set to be announced during an online show on December 7.

As agencies only enter their very best work, reaching the shortlist among so many potential winners is a major achievement. Epica congratulates everyone who appears on it, and gives thanks to all the agencies, production companies and clients who took part.

Over the past few days, a unique jury of editors and journalists from around the world has watched and appraised the work, delivering valuable PR exposure to the entrants. With around 200 jurors actively voting, it was one of the largest juries in our history.

These finalists go through to the next round of the jury, which takes place online from November 22 to December 1. An in-person Grand Prix jury session will take place in Brussels.

Gold and Grand Prix winners will be screened during a special online ceremony on December 7.

Silver and Bronze winners will be published on the Epica Awards website the next day, December 8.

The highest number of entries this year came from Canada (296) followed by Germany (202), France (138), the United States (126), and the United Kingdom (125). In terms of networks, Publicis, McCann Worldgroup, Dentsu, VMLY&R and Wunderman Thompson were particularly well represented.

Since 1987, the Epica Awards jury has been exclusively composed of editors and senior reporters from the world’s leading titles covering creativity and communications. They are supported by journalists from specialist fields such as post-production, design, tech, automotive and fashion. A full list of jury members can be seen at www.epica-awards.com.
