An Aberdeen festival has received a £11,000 funding boost from a national scheme.
The Aberdeen Mela One World Day event was awarded £11,000 from a £113,030 cash pot.
It is among 13 events from nine local authority areas across Scotland to be awarded funds from EventScotland, as part of the National Programme Fund.
Robbie Clyde, head of EventScotland, said: “Our National programme of events plays an integral role in our work in increasing domestic tourism across Scotland and supporting our long-term strategy in promoting Scotland as an events destination worldwide.”
Aberdeen Mela, which celebrates the area’s diverse culture, will take place at Westburn Park on July 29 from noon until 7pm.
Last year between 8,000 and 10,000 people attended.
