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.

Drama ExpressDrama Express is an innovative, inclusive arts organisation based within Cornwall that is aimed at young people between 10 and 18 years with a diagnosis of 'complex support need'. The group's pantomime project in 2018 involved the young people in the writing process, construction of the set, designing costumes and promoting the final performances. There was careful and considerate planning of every last detail to ensure that all aspects of the performance were accessible to those with different requirements and the shows were both signed and audio described for audiences. The project has had a hugely positive impact on the confidence and skills of the young people and encouraged audiences and other organisations to think about the potential for all young people.
