Scotland's national arts funding agency has revealed £1.7m in award for artists and organisations.

Creative Scotland has published details of 90 awards for festivals, musicians, visual artists, festivals and more in its 'Open Funding' programme.

Among the awards is funding towards an original music score by Donald Shaw, of Capercaillie and the Celtic Connections festival, for Highlands, a new television series.

The description of the £5,000 award says "Shaw will draw on his experience of traditional music and film to create an original soundtrack. Funding will enable a wider range of musicians for the project, with a view to creating an impressive soundtrack that marries orchestral and traditional music."

An award of £30,000 will go to the International Association of Margaret Morris Movement, which will make Margaret Morris: Archive Alive, focussing on the feminist, environmental, educational and fine art legacy of the dance pioneer.

The project aims to "celebrate her contribution to Scotland’s culture through a series of artists' residencies and new moving image commissions inspired by the artefacts that are currently held within Margaret Morris' Archive."

Amongst the festivals receiving support is The Mòd Fringe.

It takes place in Stornoway, Isle of Lewis from 14-22 October 2016 alongside The Royal National Mòd.

Funding will support the programming of three Gaelic shows during The Mòd Fringe – Mac-talla Cogaidh (Echoes of War), Àite Mo Ghaoil (Place of my Heart) and Gach Sgeul (Every Story).

Other festivals receiving support across the country include Glasgow International Jazz Festival, Ullapool Book Festival, The Skye Book Festival, Dumfries and Galloway Arts Festival, Perth Festival of the Arts and Hidden Door Festival in Edinburgh.

Rural communities in the Highlands and Islands will have greater access to a community cinema with an expansion of Film Mobile Scotland offering cinema provision for a number of venues including Wick, Tain, Cromarty and Invergordon.

Iain Munro, the deputy chief executive at Creative Scotland said: "From performances at The Mòd Fringe, touring cinema in the Highlands, international showcases in Austin, Texas and the creation of new work we are delighted to have been able to support such a range of practice and scale through Open Project Funding.

"This funding route helps artists and creative people bring their ideas to life, widen access to their work, and enrich Scotland’s reputation as a distinctive creative nation.

"Collectively, these projects will have a major impact on the quality of people’s lives across Scotland in many different ways, stimulating people’s imagination and confidence through coming together to enjoy artistic and creative experiences."

Over £1.5 million of the awards has been allocated from the UK National Lottery funds.

Open Project awards are made in the range £1,000 to £100,000, or up to £150,000 by exception.
