Have You Got What It Takes to Win an Epic Award?

UK and Republic of Ireland’s premier award for amateur cultural groups, the Epic Awards opens for nominations.

Are you part of a creative group that is doing something exciting and interesting? Have you embarked on a particularly ambitious project, interesting collaboration or made a difference to the lives of others in your community? From creative writing to making music and from amateur theatre to yarn-bombing, over 65,000 amateur arts groups across the UK and Republic of Ireland are making a huge difference in their local areas. There is growing recognition in the media and in public policy of the importance of everyday participation in creativity. The Epic Awards shines a spotlight on the incredible achievements of these groups each year.

You can nominate your group or a group in your local area for an award by filling in the form on www.epicawards.co.uk and put them forward for special recognition and a range of prizes from financial support to advice, partnership and performance opportunities. Winning groups are those that demonstrate the four Epic qualities – Engagement, Partnership, Innovation and Creativity – in projects that involve people taking part for the love of it. The awards are now open or nominations so have a go today.
