EPIC Awards 2018

 

The 2018 star-studded celebration of community media will take place in the spring.

The EPIC Awards 2018 will be held on April 25th at The Fillmore in downtown Silver Spring and the evening will once again be hosted by CNN’s Joe Johns.

Last year’s event honored journalists such as Juan Williams and the late Jim Vance for their contributions to our homes and communities, just to name a few.

The upcoming elegant evening at The Fillmore will include an opening reception and dinner.  It’s an event you won’t want to miss.
