RTS Programme Awards 2019 in partnership with Audio Network
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.
The awards seek to recognise programmes which, in the year in question, have made a material and positive contribution to their genre: either because their originality in form or content has in some way moved the genre on, or perhaps created a new genre; or because their quality has set standards which other programme-makers can learn from and emulate.
Entries for this year's awards are currently being judged.
The nominations will be announced at a breakfast reception on 5 March 2019.
About our sponsor
Audio Network is the music company for broadcasters, brands, creators and music fans everywhere, breaking down boundaries to deliver music seamlessly across the world. The company first disrupted the market landscape in 2001 with a unique proposition: simple and transparent licensing allowing creators to use music on multiple platforms, everywhere, forever.
Audio Network now has an expansive catalogue of 150,000+ wholly-owned tracks created by 1,000+ renowned composers, singer-songwriters and known and emerging artists. These are curated into albums and playlists across every imaginable mood and genre. At the same time, regular recording sessions take place at some of the world’s best studios (including 150+ yearly sessions at Abbey Road Studios), enabling them to stay true to our brand promise of music of unrivalled quality.
Since its inception 17 years ago, the business has grown exponentially. In fact, The Sunday Times lists Audio Network as one of the UK’s fastest growing companies (Tech Track 2011-2013; Profit Track 100 2013- 2015; SME Export track 2015; Les Champions de la Croissance 2017), and most acclaimed, having won the Queen’s Prize for Enterprise in 2018 (following previous wins of the 2008 Queen’s Award for Innovation and the 2012 Queen’s Award for International Trade).
The company constantly invests in its people, its music and its clients, with offices in London (HQ), Los Angeles, New York, Paris, Toronto, Amsterdam, Sydney, Munich and Tokyo, and a staff of more than 150, including dedicated music consultants and experts. Under the leadership of CEO Robb Smith, and the guidance of our original founders Robert Hurst and Andrew Sunnucks, that model remains at the heart of the business as the company enters a new phase of expansion.
Now they deliver music to the rest of the world with the same simple commitment: high-quality music, clear and simple licensing and seamless, innovative service.
