Enter your event now for one of the event categories in the Scottish Thistle Awards 2015/2016.
Best Cultural Event or Festival and Best Sporting Event celebrate events that provide a platform for Scotland to show off its greatest assets.
Entries for all categories are quick and simple and close on 6th June.
For over 20 years the Scottish Thistle Awards have been recognised as our tourism industry Oscars. The Awards are based on 5 regional programmes, with the winners proceeding to a National Final.
Entries are open to organisers of new or established events of any scale. The event must have taken place within the last 12 months and outcomes must already be known at the time of submission.
Last year, regional winners of the Best Event or Festival Award were Edinburgh International Science Festival, Glasgow Film Festival, Hebridean Celtic Festival and The Enchanted Forest, with the latter winning the National Award.
The 2014/2015 National Awards ceremony took place on 5th March 2015 at the Crowne Plaza in Glasgow, hosted by TV and radio star Edith Bowman.
We're also encouraging those in the events industry to nominate individuals for the Young Ambassador Award. This award recognises the passion and dedication of young people under 30 and the contribution they make to Scotland's tourism industry.
Finalists will be announced 18th September.
