European Association of Communications Agencies
The European Association of Communications Agencies (EACA), formerly the European Association of Advertising Agencies (EAAA) and founded in 1959, is the sole central service organisation for the European advertising agency industry. The EACA, located in Brussels, combines the knowledge and input of the membership groups, i.e. the National Advertising Agency Associations; the International Advertising Agencies, and the pan-European Media Agencies.
EACA Effie Awards Europe
The aim of the EACA Effie Awards Europe competition is to reward advertising that builds brands across borders. It sets out to give recognition to campaigns that have been successful in three or more European countries.
Introduced in 1996, the EACA Effie Awards Europe builds on the EFFIE name, the world's best-known trademark in advertising effectiveness for over 30 years. In 1999 the European Association of Communications Agencies merged its Advertising Achievement Awards with the Effie Awards Europe. The EACA Effie Awards Europe is the first pan-European advertising award to be judged principally on effectiveness.
