RTS Craft & Design Awards 2021

The RTS Craft & Design Awards 2021 are now open for entries.


The awards celebrate excellence in broadcast television and aim to recognise the huge variety of skills and processes involved in programme making.

Entries are now open across all 29 competitive categories ranging from the Casting Award, now in its second year, to Production Design – Drama and Lighting for Multicamera. There are also two additional awards presented at the discretion of the RTS, the prestigious RTS Special Award and the Lifetime Achievement Award.

Ade Rawcliffe, Group Director of Diversity and Inclusion at ITV has come on board to Chair this year’s Craft & Design Awards, which will announce the winners in November. 

Ade Rawcliffe said: “Despite a challenging 18 months for the industry, we have also seen great innovation, determination and resourcefulness. The country locked down, but many of us kept going, so it is an important year for us to come together to celebrate the incredible crafts people and content the television industry has produced. I am so pleased to be Chairing the awards, and we are keen to receive submissions from the broadest range of talent possible. We want to recognise the depth of world-class practitioners we have here in the UK, and who come from all types of backgrounds.”

The awards are now open and accepting entries until 23:59 on Wednesday 8 September.
