The RTS Programme Awards 2022, in partnership with Audio Network, is now open for entries.


The RTS Programme Awards are one of the gold standard awards for our industry and an important showcase of the extraordinary talent evident across the UK’s television industry.

Entries are now being accepted for programmes and performances that have been broadcast or streamed between 1 January 2021 and 31 December 2021.

New for this year, two of the coveted award categories have been renamed, including RTS Network of the Year, previously known as RTS Channel of the Year, which explicitly recognises the performance of a single broadcast channel, network or streaming service. Additionally, Limited Series replaces the Mini Series category, which highlights self-contained drama series with a closed-ended story arc.

The RTS Programme Awards celebrate programmes and performances which have made a material and positive contribution worthy of acclaim by the industry and UK viewers in 31 categories across: Single Drama; Drama Series; Limited Series; Soap and Continuing Drama; Writer – Drama; Scripted Comedy; Entertainment; Comedy Entertainment; Writer – Comedy; Actor (Female); Actor (Male); Entertainment Performance; Comedy Performance (Female); Comedy Performance (Male); Presenter; Breakthrough Award; History; Science and Natural History; Arts; Single Documentary; Documentary Series; Formatted Popular Factual; Daytime Programme; Children’s Programme; Live Event; Sports Programme; Sports Presenter, Commentator or Pundit; RTS Network of the Year; Judges’ Award and the Outstanding Achievement Award.

The 2022 RTS Programme Awards will be presented on Tuesday 29 March 2022, with nominations being announced in early March. Closing date for entries is Friday 10 December 2021.
