The team of volunteers behind Outwith Festival were the recipients of this year's Community Champion Judges' Award for their efforts to "promote, nurture and encourage local talent, while at the same time, raising the profile of Dunfermline and celebrating its cultural heritage."

The six day festival will run from Wednesday, September 6, until Sunday, September 10, and offers a huge variety of arts with film, visual art, and classical music as well as food and foraging events.
