The Beautiful campaign ensures that communities are properly rewarded for their efforts in improving their local environments.
Communities taking part will be rewarded a Bronze, Silver, Silver Gilt or Gold medal based on the marks they receive after being assessed by experienced judges. Every community that takes part in the campaign will receive an award, provided that they reach a minimum standard. There will still be an overall category winners but the new medal system is designed to encourage communities to retain or improve on their own previous efforts.
The Beautiful Scotland campaign provides an opportunity for groups to compete for a range of prestigious awards and medals. Over the years, the campaign organisers have found that healthy competition serves to improve the standard and encourage the participants to strive for excellence in their submissions.
