What a fantastic start to the new year! This year's winner of Scotland's answer to The Turner Prize (but for painters... we're hot with the trends Mr Hirst) will be announced at a glittering evening of art and sparkle in The Fleming Collection's Mayfair gallery on Monday 11 January 2010.
How strange does 2010 sound?
Of course someone has to win, but unlike reality TV, there are no losers. It's the taking part which counts and the journey to get there is part of the experience for all concerned.
