EPIC Awards

The 2022 epic award portal is now open!

Due to our one year hiatus, CAPIO is welcoming entries from both 2020 and 2021. 

We plan to judge each year’s entries against entries from that year; with a possible exception if entries in a category fall below 3. Those entries may then be combined with entries from that category from the 2021 year.

Read on for more information about our categories, how to enter, entry fees and how to make your entry EPIC.
