The Scots Trad Music Awards celebrate Scotland's traditional music in all its forms and create a high profile opportunity to bring the music and music industry into the spotlight of media and public attention.

The awards are organised by Hands Up for Trad. Since 2008 the awards have been sponsored by MG Alba, and for several years the event has been televised on BBC Alba.
