The Royal Television Society (RTS), Britain’s leading forum for television and related media, has opened entries for the RTS Student Television Awards 2017. The Awards recognise the best in student television from across the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland.
Entries are accepted from any students attending higher education institutions at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. Awards are presented in six categories: Animation, Comedy & Entertainment, Drama, Factual, News and Short Feature.
In addition, to reward excellence in craft skills, undergraduate and postgraduate awards will be presented for Camerawork, Editing, Production Design and Sound. Entries will not be accepted for these categories but will be awarded at the judges’ discretion.
This year also sees the introduction of the Judges’ Award, which will be judged nationally from among the category winners in both Undergraduate and Postgraduate awards as the ‘best of the best’.
All entries must be submitted via the RTS Online Entry System by Friday 30 September 2016. The Awards will be presented on Friday 16 June 2017 to reward outstanding work produced during the 2015/2016 academic year.
Undergraduate entries will first be judged at a regional level by their local RTS Centre in winter 2016. The winning films from each RTS Centre Student Awards will then be judged nationally in April 2017. Postgraduate entries qualify automatically for national assessment.
