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.

This New GroundThis New Ground is an initiative that elevates the artistic talents of learning disabled people in Hammersmith and Fulham, and began in 2017 as a choir for learning disabled people. This New Ground Collective is made up of 16 learning disabled people and artists, who have been working towards The Big Exchange project, a year long participatory project which started in May 2018. The Big Exchange Project took place at Bishop Creighton House, Lyric Hammersmith and Bush Theatre. It showcased a new piece of participant-led theatre made in collaboration with Spare Tyre Theatre exploring themes including hiding, relationships and feelings; two short films exploring identity, self-perception and storytelling; a mini podcast series and an original group music composition based on stories that connected participants to their home.
