What are the Awards?

Since 2011, we've been celebrating the city's creative community at our annual Creative Edinburgh Awards, highlighting the projects, people and places that flourish across Edinburgh and continually ensure its place on the cultural map. Combined with Creative Edinburgh’s Birthday Bash, we get together to don the dancing shoes, raise a glass and cheer on our fellow creatives!

While we may not be in the same room this year, we'll be coming together virtually, united in spirit and sharing cheers, woops and hollas from all corners of Edinburgh!

You’ll hear from the people behind the shortlisted projects, learn more about the ceremony sponsors and partners, and see the 2020’s winners announced LIVE! Plus, you can enjoy our virtual after party with music live streamed from our venue partner, 54EP.
