The Republic of Ireland Centre celebrates television in the area, organising a range of events and awards throughout the year.
Events cover a wide range of areas, from engineering, programming and production to the political issues affecting television in all its aspects.
The ROI Centre organises the RTS Student TV Awards each year in six categories, Animation Comedy & Entertainment, Drama, Factual, News and Short Form. The award recipients of each category go forward for judging in the finals in London in June. (See AWARDS page for full information).
Closing date for submitting entries for Student TV Awards 2020 is 25 October 2019. See website address https://rts.org.uk/award/student-television-awards-2020 for full information on criteria and entry forms.
The Republic of Ireland Centre celebrated its 21st anniversary in 2017, and is particularly interested to welcome young people - especially students and those already working in the media as members.
Free membership is available to students and, indeed, at the other end of the spectrum, reduced rates are available to those now retired from a lifetime in television or associated industries.
