ROYAL TELEVISION SOCIETY OPENS ENTRIES FOR STUDENT TELEVISION AWARDS 2018

Posted on 4 August 2017

The Royal Television Society (RTS), Britain’s leading forum for television and related media, has opened entries for the RTS Student Television Awards 2018.

The awards recognises work created by undergraduate and postgraduate students attending higher education institutes across the UK and Republic of Ireland, and are presented in six categories: Animation, Comedy & Entertainment, Drama, Factual, News and Short Feature.

The jury is looking for pieces that show outstanding visual and aural creativity, a mastery of craft skills, innovation, initiative and story-telling. The RTS also feels it is important that these awards reflect diversity both within student filmmaking and wider society so will pay due recognition across all of its awards categories for the need for diversity.

Undergraduate and postgraduate awards are also handed-out for Camerawork, Editing, Production Design and Sound in order to recognise excellence in craft skills. In addition, the RTS Student Television Judges’ Award will be presented to the best overall entry from among the national category winners as chosen by the jury chairs. Entries are not accepted for these categories but will be awarded at the judges’ discretion.

All entries must be produced during the 2016/2017 academic year and submitted using the RTS Online Awards Entry System by Friday 20 October 2017. Undergraduate entries will first be judged at a regional level by their local RTS Centre in winter 2017. The winning films from each RTS Centre Student Awards will then be judged nationally in April 2018. Postgraduate entries qualify automatically for national assessment.

The awards will be presented on Friday 22 June 2018 at the BFI Southbank. For more information visit: https://www.rts.org.uk/awards/student-television-awards.
