The Proud Scotland Awards™is back for its fourth year in 2022.
Join in the PUBLIC VOTE
The Proud Scotland Awards are designed to celebrate the LGBTQI+ community by recognising the outstanding work and commitment of individuals and organisations within and supportive of our community in Scotland.
They honour and encourage all, north to south, who stand up for diversity, equality and inclusion. Over the last two years we have awarded lots of very special people and organisations in recognition of their work and dedication to others. We are delighted to be opening up nominations again for The Royal Bank of Scotland Proud Scotland Awards 2021 where more will be honoured for all that they do.
Nominations are now open and we ask you to nominate someone or organisation you feel deserves rewarded at The Proud Scotland Awards 2021.
