Council events up for five top industry awards

Events run by the City of Edinburgh Council have been nominated in five categories at the Scottish Event Awards 2012 with Edinburgh’s Hogmanay up for four top awards including ‘Best International Event’.

A team of judges gathered last month to decide the nominees for this year's awards. Winners are set to be announced at an awards ceremony in Glasgow on the 6th September.

Six entries by the Council are up for five categories at the Scottish Event Awards 2012 - an award scheme that celebrates the best of the Scottish events industry.

Councillor Steve Cardownie, Festivals and Events Champion for the City of Edinburgh, said: "Edinburgh is recognised as the cultural capital of Scotland and throughout the year hosts major international festivals, events and of course our world famous Hogmanay celebrations.

"To be in the running for five major industry awards is a remarkable achievement in itself and all credit must go to everyone involved in making these events so resoundingly successful. I wish the team every success when the final results are announced later this year."
