Bloody Scotland Scottish Crime Debut of the Year
In 2019 Bloody Scotland introduced a new prize to recognise the quality in new talent blossoming within crime writing – the Bloody Scotland Scottish Crime Debut of the Year.
Similar to the McIlvanney Prize, Scottish roots are a must, either being born in Scotland or living there, and setting their books there.
Judged by members of the Bloody Scotland board and different participants each year, the winner is awarded a cheque of £500 and a trophy sponsored by The Glencairn Glass.
