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.

Origami PulseThree women who had been independently practicing origami for a combined total of 25 years came together in the last year to share the joy it brings them with others. They have focused their efforts on vulnerable people and have created Butterfly Trees, Thousand Peace Crances and Memorial Day Poppies. The three joined forces and have since won several awards and worked with over 2,000 people across the country, working with big companies and a wide range of charities, including weekly origami sessions in a female only safe environement with Tomorrow's Women Wirral. The wellbeing benefits for participants is clear to all involved as the calming practice of origami helps them deal with their emotions, and several are now involved as volunteers helping to share with others.
