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.

Light2000< Back to Shortlist

The Light2000 community group is publishing a book which contains a verse poem and a painting for each tree on a tree trail of 25 trees in Kilborney Park, Rostrevor.

The group invited the public, including artistic people to take part in a walk led by a local tree enthusiast in Kilbroney Park. They also offered creative writing workshops to learn the technique of the haibun with local art groups and writers from the area  who submitted works that will be selected by a committee for the book.

The book will be launched combined with a public reading and exhibition of paintings.
