VistScotland’s Year of Stories 2022 celebrates stories inspired by, written, or created in Scotland.

Coast, rural or city, Scotland’s Year of Stories comes alive across five themes: iconic stories and storytellers, new stories, people and places, local tales and legends, and stories inspired by nature.

Year of Stories promotes how Scotland’s diverse culture, languages and ways of life – urban and rural – provide a source of rich storytelling and inspiration.  Across literature, screen and entertainment the Year of Stories celebrates Scotland’s wealth of treasured and iconic stories and storytellers from classics to contemporary. It shines a light on emerging, fresh and forward-looking talent and highlights the innovators across all forms of storytelling. Every part of Scotland has stories to tell: stories of now as well as those passed through the generations, stories to help us make sense of time and place.

The VisitScotland: Year of Stories – Influencer of the Year award will recognise inspirational, distinct and original storytelling anchored on one or more of the five Year of Stories themes. Stories inspired by, written, or created in Scotland that highlight the diversity of voices across Scotland and underline responsible tourism and sustainability themes are of particular interest.

Entries across all forms of social mediums are accepted be it Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, YouTube, podcasts or other innovative and publicly accessible digital platforms. Influencers are invited to use the #YS2022 #TalesOfScotland and #VisitScotland hashtags when sharing content leading up to the Scottish Influencer Awards to respond to this category.
