In addition, to reward excellence in craft skills, Undergraduate and Postgraduate Awards will be presented for Camerawork, Editing and Sound. Nominations will not be accepted for these categories as the awards are chosen by an expert panel.

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’.

Phil Edgar-Jones, Director of Sky Arts, has returned to chair the RTS Student Awards 2017 and said, “I’m delighted to take on the role of Chair of the RTS Student Television Awards 2017. It is right that we celebrate and, more importantly, champion, the work of the industry’s talented next generation.”

“This year the award judges want to see work that showcases outstanding visual and aural creativity, a mastery of craft skills, innovation, initiative and story-telling. In particular they will look for freshness, originality and audience appeal.”

Entries must be submitted by Friday 30 September 2016 and the Awards will be presented on Friday 16 June 2017 to rewards any outstanding work that has been produced during the 2015/16 academic year.

Undergraduate entries are first judged at a regional level by their local RTS Centre in the winter of 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.
