Book Prize


Each year, the Society gives an award for the best work by a Highlander at the Royal Scottish Academy’s Annual Exhibition. In addition, in conjunction with the Royal National Mòd, the Society launched the Highland Art Prize for artists and art associations based in the Highlands and Islands, comprising an annual exhibition and competition during Mòd week each October.

The Society presents the annual Highland Book Prize in May each year, in conjunction with Moniack Mhor Creative Writing Centre and the William Grant Foundation, to bring recognition to books created in or about the Highlands.  In addition, the Society supports the Fiction Prize at the Gaelic Literature Awards and offers an essay prize through the University of the Highlands and Islands for the best undergraduate dissertation on a subject relating to the Highlands and Islands.
