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.

The Listen Share Change Neighbourhood Champions NetworkEstablished in June 2018, the Listen Share Change project was initiated by The Verbal and Northern Ireland Housing Executive working in partnership. The project brings together community volunteers who already deliver creative sessions in their communities to help people voice issues that affect them through a programme of facilitated sessions. The project has successfully recruited a network of Neighbourhood Champions from across Northern Ireland. Participating community groups have nominated 32 Neighbourhood Champions who are delivering a 36-week programme of weekly shared reading and facilitated conversations. The volunteers receive accredited training, and represent their community at network meetings and events. The The Verbal and Northern Ireland Housing Executive are committed to continuing to support our network beyond the lifespan of the funded project.
