Be sure to tick the box at the end before adding to cart to copy your entry into another category.

I am working abroad, can I enter the EPA Digital Media Awards?

Yes, you can enter every category bar Best Agency as long as the campaign ran in Ireland.

I won't see the results of my campaign until after the deadline, should I still enter?

In short, yes.

A large proportion of the criteria is to see the makings of the campaign and all the behind-the-scenes work it takes to launch. Make sure to double-check the weight of marks given in the Results section and instead talk about your projections and include any feedback/tester comments that would indicate your projected results.

What time frame must the campaign cover?

Between December 2018 and December 2019.

If your campaign ran outside of this time frame, the majority of the campaign must fall in between these months.

Is there a word limit?

Each section of the entry form has a word count of 400 words. Please keep your information concise and relevant.

What date do entries close?

Good news! We have extended the deadline one last time until Wednesday, 27th of November.

We accept bribery in the form of chocolate for any futher extensions.


How does the judging process work for each round?

Judging, insofar as possible, will be remote. Two judges will judge each application and the final score will be the average of the two marks. In the case that the average score is the same, a 3rd independent judge will review the top 3 entries.

When are entries judged?

The judging commences the second week of December 2020 regardless of any extensions given.


How do I buy tickets to the awards?

All tickets will be available to purchase through our online booking form in early 2020.
