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.

National Video Game Orchestra of Wales< Back to Shortlist

Founded by two postgraduate students from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, and born from a mutual love of video games and music, the National Video Game Orchestra of Wales is 65-strong and comprised of students who volunteer their time. The first performance, originally conceived as a one-time gig, was a near sell-out, so the decision was made to continue the orchestra. The project has introduced people to a new repertoire in the form of video game music, which the founders would like to see recognised on the same platform as TV or film music.
