The YES Festival has been shortlisted for an Arts & Business Scotland Award, celebrating innovative and creative relationships between the cultural and business sectors.

The collaboration between Claros Imaging, of Gullane, and the YES Festival is shortlisted in the digital innovation category, along with the likes of Edinburgh International Festival and the National Theatre of Scotland.

Lawrence Robertson, joint festival director, said: “It is terrific that we are in the frame with important national players in our very first festival.”

The awards shortlist states: “The sponsorship by Iain Black of Claros enabled the YES Arts Festival to have a strong creative brand which was distinctive and easily recognised as well as rooted in the local landscape.

“The YES Festival identity was a key factor in the festival’s success.”

Chief executive of Arts & Business Scotland, David Watt, said: “The shortlist showcases a fantastic range of collaborations which is testament to the commitment the business community has shown to supporting cultural activity and cultural engagement across the breadth of Scotland.”

The awards ceremony takes place in the Theatre Royal in Glasgow on October 24.
