Two of Scotland's most popular museums are being considered for the UK arts industry's largest cash prize.
Glasgow's Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum and the National Museums Scotland are among 10 contenders for the £100,000 Art Fund Prize.
The money is awarded to the museum which demonstrates the most innovation and originality through its projects.
This year's judges include film-maker Lord Puttnam and artist Grayson Perry. The winner will be announced in June.
The Kelvingrove Art Gallery has been nominated for the second time in recognition of a programme of educational events about the Scottish Enlightenment.
The National Museums Scotland is nominated for the Changing Nation exhibition at the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh. It charted life in Scotland through war, industry and social change.
Last year the Shetland museum missed out on the prize to the Lightbox, in Woking, Surrey.
