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.

Heritage Theatr CymruHeritage Theatr Cymru is a new, voluntary company of ten women, which aims to explore Welsh heritage in a local context and in a sustainable way. All the participants are involved in all aspects of a play from page to stage. The play Through Our Eyes has been performing simultaneously in different locations and has changed in its focus to suit different locales. It focuses on famous and long-forgotten women from the 19th century and portrays six different but interwoven stories. The project aims to challenge audiences and push the boundaries of personal creative development.
