I'm unusual in that I'm a photographer who has some photographic related awards that I do not blather on about in my web presence. It seems as though everybody out there is an 'award winning photographer' .......... with that being prominently and repeatedly stated and often without any definition of the criterion used. I suppose they think they need it for SEO and that people will search for 'award winning photographer'.
I once "won" a corporate neck tie for sumitting a competition photograph to a national dairy. The picture was subsequently included in their annual report. So, I suppose that I am an "award-winning" photographer. Unfortunately, I am in Hertfordshire, not Scotland.
