The awards have the highest monetary value of all literary awards in Scotland but their value to the writers and publishers cannot be measured by financial worth alone. Each of the shortlisted writers for last years award enjoyed a five-fold growth in sales and the knowledge that they had been recognized by contemporary writers and literary critics.
