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.

What You Saying?What You Saying? is a raw, honest and inclusive spoken word and poetry night held at Project B in Croydon, South London. What You Saying was born out of a shared experience that some poetry nights are not safe spaces. What You Saying? was founded in 2018 to create a truly inclusive, intersectional and supportive space for everyone to come together and share a love for spoken word and poetry. As well as live shows, there are monthly poetry workshops for women, discussions and writing tasks to build up confidence to perform. What You Saying? actively programmes diverse artists from all walks of life, as well as supporting voices from the local community to encourage listening, learning and sharing to make change together.
