Epic Awards

The Epic Awards shine a spotlight on the achievements of creative groups across the UK and Republic of Ireland each year.

The 2020 Epic Awards closed for applications on 14 June 2020. This year, a diversity of inspiring groups and projects were awarded at our first virtual ceremony on Thursday 22 October. Discover the stories of each winner. Read more in our press release.

Each year, shortlisted entries are put forward for the highly coveted People's Choice Award while winners and runners-up from each of the four main categories (England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales) are selected by our panel of judges.

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.

Aimees Friday Art GroupThe group was established by Aimee Colville to fill a gap in low-cost art classes in Prestatyn in North Wales. The group’s aim is to bring people together; share ideas and techniques; socialise; make arts and crafts; have fun and enhance participants’ lives through art. Since its inception the group has grown to over 45 active members, roughly a third of whom have been referred by GPs or Occupational Therapists. Taking an imaginative approach to creativity, the group offers a wide range of visual arts and crafts activities. An NHS Occupational Therapist said, "We often don't see people again who have started attending: this is perhaps the best feedback there is."
