RTS Programme Awards

Entries open for RTS Programme Awards and RTS Television Journalism Awards

Awards are made across 30 competitive categories. This year, the Soap and Continuing Drama category has been broadened to admit any drama series with at least 20 episodes.

Kenton Allen, Chair of the RTS Programme Awards, said: “This year is proving to be another year of outstanding creativity, and we have seen – and I am sure will continue to see – genre-defining, high-quality television hit our screens.

“The juries once again are likely to have some tough decisions to make.”
