In late March, the Society’s specialist creative technology centre, RTS Thames Valley, presented its 2022 awards at a ceremony hosted by Buckinghamshire New University in High Wycombe.

These awards “recognise the convergence of our technical and creative communities”, said the centre’s Vice-Chair, Stephen Stewart, “celebrating individuals and organisations who have made a real a difference over the past 12, extraordinary months”. The ceremony was held in-person at the university and also live-streamed.

The Production Award, recognising excellence in the use of creative technology to support the production of TV content, went to Kimberley Rowell, an executive producer and news editor at BBC Three and BBC News. According to the judges, “the winner’s projects really hold power to account, giving a voice to the voiceless”.

NEP UK commercial director Richard Lancaster received the Creative Technology Award, made for excellence in the development, operation or promotion of creative media technology. During his career, which has included covering Wimbledon tennis and royal weddings, Lancaster has created “exceptional events and broadcast experiences that continually wow the audience”, said the judges.

The Innovation Award went to NDI 5, a new product that “empowers content creators to continue to push the boundaries of traditional storytelling with future-proofed technology”.

Lammie Veracruz, creative specialist at Mirriad advertising, received the Unsung Hero Award, recognising “team players going over and above their job description”.

The RTS centre’s Special Recognition Award went to KitPlus, “an organisation that, for nearly 20 years, has played an important part in informing the industry on the latest technology developments”.
