The RTS’s number one priority is the safety of its communities. In light of the rapidly evolving situation with COVID-19, we have taken the decision to either postpone or cancel all of our upcoming events for the next few months.
Where we have the right opportunity, we shall be creating additional content for you to enjoy remotely. Please stay safe in these challenging times and thank you for your patience and understanding.
The Republic of Ireland Centre celebrates television, organising a range of events and awards throughout the year. A highlight is the awards ceremony for student productions in the categories of Drama, Short Form, Comedy, Animation and Factual, and in addition in 2020 craft skills have been awarded. For further information go to the Awards section for the Republic of Ireland RTS.
Events cover a wide range of television broadcasting areas, from engineering, programming and production to the political issues affecting television in all its aspects.
The ROI Centre organises the RTS Student Television Awards each year in the categories of: Animation, Comedy & Entertainment, Drama, Factual and Short Form. The award recipients of each category go forward for judging in the finals in London in June and in 2020 the RoI students won four awards in the categories of Drama, Writing, Camerawork and Sound. (See AWARDS page for full information).
Closing date for submitting entries for the Student Television Awards 2020 is now over on https://rts.org.uk/award/student-television-awards-2020
