Appearing as a surprise guest presenter on the evening, Trainspotting director Danny Boyle, presented Kris Kubik the prestigious Best New Work award - the final prize of the night, billed as a best-of-the-best award, as he was selected from the 12 other category winners who were judged by a special panel for additional recognition. Earlier in the evening, Kris won the Camera/Photography, supported by Progressive, award for his work, Dipper from the Water of Leith.

Every year, BAFTA Scotland celebrates and rewards the diverse array of up-and-coming talent working within Scotland’s creative industries. The BAFTA Scotland New Talent Awards 2016 featured 36 nominees across 12 categories from across the country. Judging panels made up of industry professionals considered hundreds of entries to decide the shortlist and winners for each.

Among this year’s winners was 24-year-old Sarah Miele, who took home the Acting Performance Female award for her performance in Grimm Street, in which she played a character with muscular dystrophy. The Acting Performance Male award, supported by The Woven Thread, was then clinched by 23-year-old Daniel Cameron for his role in I Am Me, in which he played a character with autism.
