The RTS Student Awards celebrates the best audio-visual work created by students with an Undergraduate and Postgraduate winner both awarded in each category across Animation, Comedy & Entertainment, Drama, Factual, News and Short Form.
To reward excellence in craft skills, awards will also be presented in the following categories at the judges’ discretion: Camerawork, Editing, Production Design, Sound and Writing.
Siobhan Greene, Managing Director, 110% Content and Chair of the RTS Student Television Awards, said: “It was inspiring to see such imagination, heart and energy, that was put out there for everyone to see by all the nominees. We need to be uplifted, now, more than ever before, and the life force of creativity we watched from the entries was fantastic. I can't wait to 'meet' the nominees via Zoom on 26 June. They deserve all the praise they're going to get.”
