The Scotland Loves Local Awards are a celebration of all that is great about our nation’s towns and neighbourhoods- recognising and rewarding remarkable dedication and commitment towards shaping a sustainable, successful future with localism at its heart.
They are about highlighting the people, places and projects which are leading the way in making a difference, delivering benefits which will help make our communities cleaner, greener, stronger and fairer whether through design, delivery or sheer determination.
Awards include the commendation of a High Street Hero- a business or organisation (or an individual associated with one) which has gone above and beyond to support those around them, whether inside or outwith the Covid-19 pandemic. The event will also celebrate inspirational leaders; those who embrace heritage and culture to the benefit of their community, positive place-makers; and businesses who are doing their bit for and responding to the climate emergency.
They are all about the people who are at the heart of why Scotland Loves Local.
Eligible organisations can apply from Monday 28th June. The final closing date for applications is 5pm, Friday 10th September. Recipients will be announced during an awards ceremony to be broadcast on Thursday 25th November 2021.
