The Scottish Charity Awards 2012, organised by the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO), celebrates the vital work of charities across Scotland.
The STV Appeal, launched last year, is committed to raising funds to alleviate the poverty that affects young people in Scotland.
SCVO chief executive Martin Sime said: “The excellent quality of entries this year made for a difficult shortlisting process but it demonstrates the dedication of people working and volunteering in third sector organisations across the length and breadth of Scotland.
“These people relentlessly go above and beyond the call of duty and make a huge difference to our communities. The Scottish Charity Awards celebrate the huge effort that takes.”
This year for the first time, the Scottish Charity Awards is including a People's Choice vote where the public can have a say about what their favourite is from the shortlist.
The Scottish Government has once again agreed to match the total amount raised by the STV Appeal.
Richard Findlay, STV and STV Appeal Chairman said: “We have a huge amount of activity planned for 2012 and hope to raise even more than the £1.3m raised last year. The STV Appeal is now firmly established as a force for good and recognised as one that is truly committed to making a real difference to children affected by poverty in Scotland.”
