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.

Hims and AriasAn amateur choir but professionally led, Hims & Arias is a male voice choir based in Rhondda Cynon Taff in South Wales. The choir performs regularly at residential homes and raises money for charities, organised by a committee of choir members. Hims & Arias recently finished fifth in the Cornwall International Male Voice Festival, competing against much larger choirs. The weekly rehearsals provide an hour and a half of fun, engagement and mutual support, and the choir has been a lifeline for new members following bereavement, depression or illness.
