RTS Student Television Awards 2021

The RTS Student Television Awards are here to encourage, nurture, support and reward talent, potential and enthusiasm of students in colleges and universities for the creation of film and video content.

During these unprecedented times with the challenges they present, these Student Television Awards allow you to submit films for assessment by current professional practitioners.

The RTS has recently surveyed several Universities and Colleges with regards to our plans for this year’s RTS Student Television Awards and taking on board their feedback and recommendations, we are increasing the maximum length of entries to 30 minutes for both Undergraduate and Postgraduate student entries for this year’s Awards. For the Young Filmmaker category, the duration stays at 10 minutes.

With new filmmaking techniques and opportunities, the RTS believe that these Awards demonstrate a fantastic way to celebrate and recognise your outstanding skills, ambition and creativity and offer you a unique opportunity to put your creative talents before the critical eye of professionals, win recognition for your skills, and even “audition” for a first job in the television, media and film industry.

  • Entries will be accepted from any students enrolled in higher education institutions and from students aged 16 and over attending further education courses
  • New for 2021: The RTS has a new category alongside the RTS Student Television Awards, Young Filmmaker Award, for those aged 16-23 who are not enrolled in higher or further education
  • Taking into consideration challenges caused by COVID-19, the entry fee for 2021 will be reduced to £10 per entry per category
  • The RTS pays due recognition across all its Awards to the need for diversity. It is important that these awards should reflect diversity within the student community and within wider society.
  • The judges will look for strong story-telling, creativity, innovation, outstanding visual and aural creativity with high-quality craft skills with a strong emphasis of originality.
  • Mobile phones or film cameras, at university or at home – these Student Television Awards are open to all students and filmmakers who produce a short film for consideration.

Entries must have been made between 1 September 2019 and 31 October 2020. The closing date for submission has been extended to Monday 30 November.
