The Royal Television Society has opened submissions for its Young Technologist of the Year Awards 2021.
The annual award celebrates an outstanding engineer or technologist in the early stages of their career.
It 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.
Chair of the RTS Young Technologist of the Year Award Jury, Terry Marsh, said: “After what has been such a challenging time, it is more important than ever to continue celebrating innovation in technology and the people behind it, by shining a spotlight on future talent who are excelling in their fields, and also going above and beyond. We look forward to receiving the 2021 submissions!”
Last year’s winner was Krystel Richards, associate Broadcast-IT engineer at CNN/WarnerMedia.
Submissions are open until 5pm on Monday 24th May. To apply for the RTS Young Technologist of the Year Award 2021, applicants can download a form via the RTS website here
