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.

Homelessness on FilmThe project, supported by homelessness charity The Wallich, engaged 20 people who have experienced homelessness and rough sleeping in 3 filmmaking projects in South Wales. Participants were trained and equipped with the skills to produce their own films, learning animation, lighting, filming, scripting, interviewing and editing. The resulting short documentaries are inspiring stories of adversity, addiction, mental health, courage and hope. The project enabled and empowered people to tell their story and take full control of the creative process, and 18 of the 20 participants are in recovery and stable situations looking to develop their creativity further.
