With £20,000 awarded to the winning album, nine runners-up prizes of £1,000 and two new Art Commissions celebrating emerging and established artistic practice, The SAY Award champions the strength and diversity of Scotland’s musical output and the vital, enduring relationship it shares with the world of visual art.
