On the Saltire Awards Judging Tour – 29 May 2013

“Don’t enter awards competitions. Just don’t. It’s not good for you.” Point number 26 in Bruce Mau’s fairly reliable Manifesto (http://www.manifestoproject.it/bruce-mau/). People do though and let’s hope it’s not too bad an experience. The Saltire Society is quite rigorous in it’s judging process, and we travel round to see everything we shortlist. Here’s what I saw this year (it’s not all of them). The meeting to try to work out what wins is in a couple of weeks so┬áthis is just my (edited) view.
