The Royal Television Society (RTS) has launched the RTS Craft and Design Awards 2014-2015. The Awards recognise the huge variety of skills and processes involved in programme production, from editing to lighting, and costume design to digital effects.
This year will also see the launch of a Director’s category. Nominations and an Award will be made in a single category from any area of programme making. In addition, the RTS has changed the criteria for entrants so that individuals who are based in the UK and have worked on a category within the UK can still be entered even if the production is categorised as an international one.
Cheryl Taylor, chair of the RTS Craft and Design Awards and controller of CBBC, said, “The RTS Craft and Design Awards are an excellent way of recognising the extraordinary breadth of talent we have throughout the creative content industry. She said of the new Director’s category: “This is an important and valued part of the production process and we felt it was time to include and recognise this skill.”
The closing date for Awards entries is Monday 1 September 2015. All entries must have been first transmitted between 1 September 2014 and 31 August 2015 and may be submitted by companies or individuals. The Awards will be presented on Monday 30 November 2015 at the London Hilton, Park Lane.
Awards will be presented in the following categories:
Make Up Design
Lighting and Multicamera
Full details of each category can be found on the RTDS website.
