The John Byrne Award Ceremony 2020


Event host, Vic Galloway, looks forward to welcoming you to The John Byrne Award Ceremony this Saturday to celebrate creative talent in Scotland.

Tickets sold out two weeks ago, so with 1000 guests confirmed to attend, the event should be a big one! 🙂

We’ll treat you to a complimentary drinks reception from Seven Crofts of The Highland Liquor Company, a legendary soundtrack from our special guest DJ, and an exhibition of our best entries.

Our special guest presenters will announce the winner of The John Byrne Award 2020 and individual category awards. The winner will receive £7,500. We will also be awarding The John Byrne Award for an Outstanding Contribution to social discourse, to an organisation and an individual.

With over 2,000 entries received this year, our entry exhibition features amazing film, documentary, sculpture, photography, textiles, animation, poetry, song, illustration and a short story.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Note for guests:

  • Find Central Hall, Edinburgh here.
  • Please have your mobile tickets ready to show at the door.
  • Complimentary drinks reception starts at 7pm.

  • There’s a complimentary drinks reception and paid bars in the venue to keep your whistles wetted.
