The Scottish Alternative Music Awards (SAMAs) are an independently ran music award, which currently take place in Glasgow.
The awards were established in 2009 by music student Richy Muirhead whilst studying at university. Now in it's seventh year, the SAMAs have supported a range of award winning artists including Fatherson, Model Aeroplanes, Hector Bizerk and many more.
The awards are currently run by a small team of creatives based in Glasgow who have a great passion for music, events and collaboration. The SAMAs really care about the Scottish scene, and want to shout about it!
