Entries are now open for the RTS Young Technologist Award 2013. The aim of the award is to advance education in the science, practice, technology and art of television and its allied fields, and the winner will receive a trip to the IBC conference in Amsterdam in September.
The Award is open to early career engineers in the broadcast or related industries and judges will look for applicants who can demonstrate how the award would enhance their understanding of technology’s role in television and its allied fields, and how they will share their understanding.
Chair of the RTS Young Technologist Award jury, Terry Marsh, said: “Technological advancement in TV and its allied fields is vital as it future proofs the industry and offers fresh opportunities to be creative. We must support young technologists who are the future of the industry and I am very much looking forward to seeing this year’s applications.”
The Young Technologist Award was established by RTS with funds received from the family of A.M. Beresford-Cooke, a distinguished engineer who contributed to the development of British broadcasting technology through his work on towers and masts for VHF and UHF transmit ion.
To apply for the RTS Young Technologist Award 2013, applicants can download the application form from RTS’ website and submit it electronically by 5pm on 1 July.
