The Scottish Magazine Awards are given for magazines originally published in Scotland covering any subject, or for magazines published elsewhere in the UK that specifically address the Scottish market. A magazine is defined as any periodical that is published on a regular basis at least twice a year, but not more frequently than once a week, and is sold or distributed independently of other publications such as newspapers or books. Newspaper supplements are not eligible.
