DUE to the overwhelming response and the high level of interest, we have decided to extend the entry deadline for The Herald Scottish Culture Awards 2019 until Monday, June 3.

The awards, sponsored by Edinburgh Napier University, EventScotland part of VisitScotland’s Events Directorate and the Theatre School of Scotland, are a chance to celebrate and reward all genres of culture from the creative industries

in Scotland across 14 categories, from One to Watch to Outstanding Dance Performance.

Reece Donnelly, managing director and founder of Theatre School of Scotland, said: “We are delighted to be sponsoring The Herald Scottish Culture Awards 2019. As a business we think Scotland has so much talent yet to be discovered and that is why we have chosen to get involved.

“The Theatre School of Scotland will support the One to Watch category – even the most successful have to start somewhere.

“We have some great success stories from Scotland, and we want to find the next one. To be involved as a judge for this year’s event means so much to me.
“Having worked in Scotland, and out of it, it has made me realise we should support youngsters’ dreams and teach them it can happen – and it will if we pull together.”

All applications must be submitted by 6pm on June 3. To allow proper time for the judging process, no further extensions will be granted for entries. To enter see: http://newsquestscotlandevents.com/events/cultureawards/
