Epica Awards Sri Lanka entries are judged on the basis of 2 criteria only: the originality of the creative idea and the quality of its execution (except in the Craft & Imagery categories where only executional quality is taken into consideration).

The Epica Awards Sri Lanka results are determined by category. The highest scoring entry in each category wins gold, on condition that the work surpasses a minimum score that qualifies it as a category winner. Other entries in each category that achieve this score win silver or bronze. When no entry meets the standard, there are no winners in the category.

Six grand prix will be awarded to the best overall film, print, alternative, digital, PR and design entries. These will be selected from all the category winners. An additional Responsibility Grand Prix will be awarded among the highest scoring public interest entries.
