Last week CR returned from helping to judge this year’s Epica Awards, which awarded the top prizes to some vivid photography, well-honed long copy, a charming animated short, and a great iPhone app that makes excellent use of a London museum’s photographic archive.

The film Epica d’Or was won by Aardman Animations, Bristol for the Nokia N8 Dot commercial directed by Sumo Science (using CellScope technology) and produced for Wieden+Kennedy London. In the press section, the Epica d’Or went to M&C Saatchi, London for the Dixons The Last Place You Want to Go campaign. The interactive Epica d’Or was won by Brothers & Sisters, London for the Streetmuseum iPhone app produced for the Museum of London (the work also won Epica’s special Mobile Award.) And Fred & Farid, Paris took home the outdoor Epica d’Or for their Red campaign for Wrangler. All the Epica D’Or winning work can be seen below.

Other Epica-related stats for your delectation are that France appears to have topped the country rankings with 69 awards, including 21 winners; while Forsman & Bodenfors, Gothenburg was the most successful entrant with 15 awards, including four winners. Y&R was the most successful agency network with eight winners from four countries. JWT Italy won the Integrated category with Heineken’s Are You Still With Us? campaign.
