A premiere screening of a film made by well-known broadcaster Lesley Riddoch will be held in Inverness.

It will coincide with the announcement of the winner of an annual student prize inaugurated last year by an Inverness architectural practice.

HRI Munro will announce the £500 award for the best graduating student in BSc(Hons) Architectural Technology at UHI Inverness at its annual lecture on Wednesday.

It will be followed by the first Highland screening of Denmark; the State of Happiness, a new film in the Nordics series by journalist Lesley Riddoch.

It explores how and why Denmark is consistently rated as one of the world's best places to live, with the happiest and most contented people.

It will be followed by a lecture exploring how Scotland can aspire to emulate Denmark.

The free event is open to the public and will be held in the new UHI House at Old Perth Road at 7pm.

The annual lecture series invites speakers on environmental or design/arts subjects, relevant to the Highlands and Islands.
