The Royal Television Society has opened entries to its annual award celebrating an outstanding engineer or technologist in the early stages of their career.
Entries for the Young Technologist of the Year Award are open until 5pm on Monday 23rd May.
The award is open to those working within the technical side of broadcasting or its related industries, including: broadcasters, production companies and facilities houses, hardware and software suppliers to the industry, telecommunications suppliers of television capacity services, and recognised research institutions which are contributing in a demonstrable way to television in the UK, said the RTS.
Timeline TV’s graduate technical engineer Simon Hui won the award in 2021.
Chair of the RTS Young Technologist of the Year Award jury, Terry Marsh, said: “The past two years have shown technological innovation to be the beating heart of the television industry as we have adapted in the face of challenges and the constantly evolving landscape. It is hugely important for us to be celebrating these young technologists and to keep providing them with opportunities to continue pushing our industry forward. We look forward to receiving entries for 2022!”
