The nominations for the RTS Television Journalism Awards 2020, sponsored by Avid, have been announced. The BBC leads the way with 28 nominations overall across 17 of the 19 categories, followed by ITV with 10 nominations.
The prestigious journalism awards will be presented at a ceremony hosted by Sky News presenter Anna Botting on the 26th February 2020 at the London Hilton on Park Lane.
The awards, which span both news and current affairs, seek to recognise creative and excellent journalism by organisations whose broadcasts are transmitted on a UK-based platform, or who create online video content from a UK production base. The winners of the Judges’ Award and Outstanding Contribution Award will be announced at the awards ceremony.
Simon Bucks, Chair, RTS Television Journalism Awards, said: “The quality of entries this year has been better than ever. With such a high bar, competition to reach the short list was hotly contested and all the nominees in every category would be worthy winners.”
