The Scottish Album of the Year (SAY) Award

The Scottish Album of the Year (SAY) Award is a prestigious and exciting arts prize developed by the Scottish Music Industry Association to celebrate, promote and reward the most outstanding albums released by Scottish artists between April 2015 and March 2016. Inaugurated in partnership with Creative Scotland, The SAY Award promotes a longlist of twenty albums which, in turn, is reduced to a shortlist of ten in advance of the award ceremony when the winner is announced.

With a first prize of £20,000, nine runners-up prizes of £1,000 and a Graduate Design Commission valued at £2,500, The SAY Award is a hugely ambitious arts prize that reflects the cultural importance of music in Scotland, celebrates its links with art and design and rewards the extraordinary wealth of artistic talent Scotland seem to effortlessly produce on an annual basis. PPL is proud to be supporting the SAY Awards again this year.

Peter Leathem, Chief Executive, PPL said: “The SAY Awards are a fantastic way for PPL to support and help raise the profile of Scotland’s hugely diverse and world class music scene. On behalf of all our members it is a real pleasure to be associated with such an increasingly important event.  Our congratulations go to all the performers involved.”
