The show will be hosted by Epica Awards editorial director Mark Tungate and produced by operations director Nicolas Huvé.

“Just like so many, we’re having to reinvent ourselves as streamers this year, but we’ll try to have fun with it.” Nico commented.

Mark Tungate added: “The important thing for us was to be able to thank the entrants and celebrate the winners in a way that paid tribute their work despite the constraints. I’m looking forward to seeing the work again in this dynamic new environment.”

Established in 1987, over the years Epica has cemented its reputation as the impartial creative awards, thanks to its entirely objective press jury.

“We’ve always been somewhat unique in the creative awards landscape,” Tungate added, “so we were delighted that we attracted so many entries this year despite the circumstances. A warm thank you to all the entrants.”
