Provided by Voluntary Arts Network, the development agency for arts participation, the Epic Awards are designed to draw attention to work taking place within the voluntary and amateur arts sector.

- Those arts and crafts that people undertake for self-improvement, social networking and leisure, but not primarily for payment.
- Groups that are self-organised.
- Not-for-profit groups.
Award Winners will receive:
- Specially made Epic Award
- Framed certificate
- A tailored package of training, mentoring and promotion to help bring the group to the next level from Voluntary Arts and Epic Award Partners
