The shortlist for the 2016 Saltire Publisher of the Year Award was revealed alongside the shortlist for a new initiative for 2016, the Saltire Emerging Publisher of the Year Award.


Our publicity officer, Keara Donnachie, was shortlisted for the Emerging Publisher of the Year Award alongside Laura Waddell, Marketing Manager, (Freight Books), Robbie Guillory, Assistant Publisher, (Freight Books), Leah McDowell, Design and Production Manager, (Floris Books) and Sha Nazir, Publisher / Art Director, (BHP Comics).

The award will be formally announced at a special ceremony in Edinburgh on 24th November.

I wish them the very best of luck when the awards are announced next month.”
