The purpose of these awards is to enhance and promote the creative activities and programmes of smaller, specific communities in Scotland.  They will recognise their achievements and ambitions in using these activities, for the benefit of local communities and to attract visitors.  We want to celebrate the value of creativity to the wellbeing of communities, and to reward the hard work and imagination that lies behind the success of such places.
