Chaired by April Chamberlain, the awards cover all forms of production in Scotland, recognising excellence and innovation across a range of genres and crafts.

With the referendum taking centre stage in 2014, this year saw the introduction of the Referendum Programme award. In this category, Scotland in a Day (The Comedy Unit), Scotland 2014 (BBC Scotland News) and Scotland Decides: The Big, Big Debate (Mentorn Scotland) will battle it out for the accolade.

In the Factual categories, IWC Media and Raise the Roof Productions are both up for two awards. They will compete against each other in the Factual Entertainment & Features category, in which Kirstie's Fill Your House For Free (Raise the Roof), It Was Alright In The 70's (Objective Scotland) and Science of Stupid (IWC Media) are shortlisted. In the Documentary & Specialist Factual category Insane Fight Club (IWC Media) is up against Keys to the Castle (Darren Hercher Films) and The Battle to Beat Polio (Matchlight). Holiday of My Lifetime with Len Goodman (Raise the Roof) will battle it out against The Small Animal Hospital with John Barrowman (Tern TV) and The Link (STV Productions) in the Daytime category.

Tern TV has also been shortlisted in the Current Affairs category, where its series Cybercrimes with Ben Hammersley: Darknets is up against The Secret of Your Clothes (Firecrest Films) and BBC Scotland Investigates: The Innocent Serial Killer. Battling it out for the title of Television Journalist of the Year is Bernard Ponsonby and Brian Taylor, while Glasgow Girls (Minnow Films) will vie for the Drama award against Shetland (ITV Studios). The Comedy Unit leads the way in the Comedy category securing two of the three nominations, for How Do I Get Up There? and Scotland in a Day.

In sports, Jock Stein (Purple TV), Tonight at the Games (BBC Sport) and Sore in the Saddle, Adventure Show Special (Triple Echo Productions) compete for the accolade of Sports Programme. Live Event promises to be a hotly contested category with three powerful contenders – BT Sport Scottish Football – Hibernian v Hamilton, Second Leg Relegation Playoff, Get Inspired – Andy Murray Live and the Commonwealth Games.
