The Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust Book Awards, formerly known as the Scottish Arts Council Book Awards, are a series of literary awards in Scotland. Organised by Creative Scotland (formerly the Scottish Arts Council), and currently sponsored by the Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust, there are four categories: fiction; poetry; literary non-fiction; and first books. The winners in each category are selected by a panel of judges, and a public vote decides the overall winner of the Book of the Year award. The category winners receive £5,000 each, with the Book of the Year winner receiving a further £25,000.[1]
