The Creative Lives Awards - formerly the Epic Awards - are an annual celebration of the achievements of voluntary and community-led creativity. These awards are particularly popular among our membership, with many leisure-time music groups having been nominated and won prizes over the years!
This year, they're looking for applications from (or nominations for) community groups and projects that have shown resilience and imagination during the challenges created by the pandemic. The activity must have taken place between March 2020 and March 2021, or be ongoing. The 2021 Awards include the following categories:
- Resilient Group Award
- Local Hero Award
- Diversity Award
- Peer Award for Excellence
- People’s Choice Award
The awards are open for nominations until 31 August 2021 (11:59pm) and are free to enter.
