Epic Awards

The Epic Awards shine a spotlight on the achievements of voluntary arts groups across the UK and Republic of Ireland each year. The 2018 Epic Awards closed for applications on Thursday 11 January 2018.

The Epic Awards are an annual chance for your creative group or project to be recognised for the incredible work you've done over the past year. Applications are simple and straightforward. Click on Rules above for an outline of eligibility and terms and click on Enter when you're ready to tell us about your Epic activities.

Applications have now closed for this year and our teams of judges are busy shortlisting. Once this tough task is completed, the shortlist will be announced and the public will be able to vote for their favourite. Representatives of each of the winning projects will be invited to join us in Dublin in May to celebrate the 2018 Epic Awards!

Our 2017 winners' reception took place in March at the incredible Sage Gateshead as part of BBC Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival. See who the winners were at last year's event.
