BAFTA in Scotland has announced the launch of its annual call for entries for the British Academy Scotland Awards.

The organisation is inviting talent from Scotland’s moving image industries to submit films, documentaries, animation and games works for consideration.

This year’s event – held annually to recognise, honour and reward individuals for outstanding achievement in Scotland – will take place on Sunday November 18 at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Glasgow.  

Jude MacLaverty, director of BAFTA in Scotland said: “We are very excited to launch this year’s call for entries, particularly after the extraordinary response we received last year.

“We are continually impressed by, not only the quantity but by the quality of entries we receive across categories and from all across Scotland.”

Some of last year’s winners included Limmy’s Show for Best Entertainment, Peter Mullan for Best Writer for NEDS and Robbie Coltrane, who scooped the Outstanding Contribution to Film Award.

MacLaverty added: “The British Academy Scotland Awards are presented annually to recognise, honour and reward individuals for outstanding achievement in Scotland - and we’re hopeful that this year will be another big success, reflecting the sheer wealth and diversity of Scottish television, film and games.”
