Voluntary arts groups of all shapes and sizes can apply for the awards
Inspiring cultural projects are being sought for an annual awards ceremony.
Nominations are now open for the Epic Awards. Each year, Voluntary Arts shines a spotlight on all the incredible creative activity taking place across the UK and Ireland. From drama groups to choirs, painters to tapestry weavers and much more – since 2010 the awards have celebrated the creative people making a difference in their community.
A winner and runner-up is chosen from each nation, alongside a People’s Choice Award voted for by the public.
Previous Epic Award winners in Scotland include an Aberdeenshire Christmas show that involved the entire community, a music project for asylum-seekers in Glasgow, and a visual arts trail in Dumfries and Galloway.
Groups of all shapes and sizes can nominate themselves, as long as their activity took place in 2019 and was run primarily by volunteers.
