EEPA 2017 compendium



Every year, the EEPA compendium is produced to celebrate the achievements of the shortlisted projects on European level. The compendium provides an overview of the Awards process including: what is means to become an EEPA winner, the Jury, the judging process and how the EEPA are promoted.

As well as an insight into the process, the compendium is a chance for each of the five category winners, and respective runners up, to be showcased and put in the spotlight. It also provides additional and more extensive coverage of the Grand Jury Prize winner, in accordance with the accolade that this award represents.
