and named judges.

Today sees as the SMIA launch the Scottish Album of the Year (SAY) Award a major new arts prize backed by Creative Scotland.


With a 20,000 first prize (a sum equal to the Barclaycard Mercury Prize windfall), plus 1000 each for nine runners-up, the inaugural Scottish Album of the Year Award will celebrate the best Scottish albums of 2011 from any genre (pop, rock, electronic, folk, jazz, classical and beyond), as variously elected by a public vote, 100 industry "nominators" and a 10-strong judging panel chaired by academic, former journalist at The Herald and Belle and Sebastian manager John Williamson. The judges include Turner prize-winner Susan Philipsz, Canongate Books' editorial director Francis Bickmore, musician and broadcaster Mary Ann Kennedy, Optimo DJ Keith McIvor (aka JD Twitch), and The Herald's arts editor Keith Bruce. They'll elect and announce the winning album in a ceremony at Glasgow Film City on June 19.
