The Epicas are judged by a 53-person jury made up of senior editorial staff from publications covering the marketing and creative industries in countries around the globe, including strategy. The Epicas have been announcing the Gold winners as they’ve been decided on social media all week, with Grand Prix winners announced at a gala in Berlin yesterday.

Leo Burnett Toronto, Zulu Alpha Kilo and Rethink each took home a Gold. Leo won its Film Gold in the Public Service category for its “#WhoWillYouHelp” anti-assault campaign for the Ontario Government, Zulu won Film Gold in Non-Alcoholic Drinks for its “Confession” spot for Nestea, and Rethink won Gold in Virtual Reality for its oil spill simulation activation for The Dogwood Initiative.
