Two regional news services – BBC East and ITV Anglia – enjoyed their night at the RTS East Awards in early March.

The BBC region triumphed in the Factual category with its documentary, White Van Gogh Man, about Norfolk artist Ruddy Mudd, who uses mud to create paintings on the side of his van and has raised thousands of pounds for local charities. BBC Look East health correspondent Nikki Fox was named best On-screen Journalist.
 
ITV Anglia presenter Kate Prout won the On-screen Personality prize and her colleague, journalist Rob Setchell, took home the News and Current Affairs Feature award for his report, “The Big Online Gamble”.
 
Norwich-based Epic Studios Broadcast also took home two awards: Lilium was named best Promotional Film and World of Sport Live Tour Promo won the Digital Content award.
 
Video production agency Forward won the Craft Skills award for its short film about Norfolk artist Nial Adams. SubMotion Productions took home the Short Film prize for its documentary following eight young people with severe autism as they travel to Abbey Road Studios to record their own song, Let Me Shine.
 
The ceremony was hosted by Becky Jago, the co-presenter of ITV News Anglia and Stewart White, who presents regional BBC news programme Look East, at the Assembly House in Norwich.
 
“It has been a great year for the creative industries in the East, and we are extremely proud of the quality of content and talent coming out of the region,” said RTS East Chair Tony Campbell.
 
“The standard of submissions was very high this year and it was fantastic to come together to celebrate everyone’s achievements – congratulations to all the winners.”
 
In the student categories, Norwich University of the Arts and Anglia Ruskin University each won two of the main awards. The former took home the Animation and Comedy and Entertainment prizes, while Anglia Ruskin scooped the Drama and Factual awards.
