Community groups working to enhance their homes are invited to register for the 2018 Beautiful Scotland campaign.

The 2018 theme is "Year of Young People."  Every group will be sent a packet of sunflower seeds and a document with ideas to help get started.

Groups would be expected to work with a variety of community groups, schools, and local organisations and businesses across the entire village, town or city. 

Judging will take place at the beginning of August for the prestigious trophies within 13 different categories. These categories are based on electoral roll population size, ranging from Wee Villages to Cities, and there are additional prizes for outstanding effort in specific areas such as biodiversity, sustainability and tourism. A selection of winners are nominated to represent Scotland in the following years’ RHS Britain in Bloom finals.
