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.

Tenx9Tenx9 is a storytelling event where nine people have up to ten minutes each to tell a true story from their own life. Started in Belfast in 2011 by Paul Doran and Pádraig Ó Tuama, Tenx9 is popular on the Belfast arts scene. Approached in early 2018 by the Northern Ireland Department of Health, Tenx9 were asked to take the format into prisons, a new environment for them. Over three sessions participants worked on their stories and presented it to an invited audience, and together the group achieved a sense of self-confidence and pride in their creative work. Tenx9 have since been invited back to run the work at a women’s prison.
