A skate park, a mountain rescue team and a waterfront museum are among the projects which have benefited from more than £100 million of lottery cash.
Almost 4,000 grants were awarded across Scotland last year, according to figures released on Tuesday.
Dundee's V&A museum project received £200,000, while £100,000 was granted to develop the Kings Park skate park in Stirling.
Ochils Mountain Rescue Team was awarded almost £10,000 to purchase new satellite navigation equipment and more than £262,000 went to Home-Start Aberdeen, a group supporting disadvantaged families with young children.
The projects, along with others which have received lottery funding in the last 18 years, are in the running for this year's National Lottery Awards.
The winners will receive a £2,000 cash prize and national recognition.
John Barrowman, presenter of last year's awards show, said: "National Lottery players in Scotland should be proud of the difference they are making to people in the area.
"The National Lottery Awards recognise the unsung heroes, dedicated workers and selfless volunteers making great use of lottery funding."
The awards are open for entries until 9am on March 19. Any projects wishing to enter can do so by visiting www.nationallotteryawards.org.uk.
