THE RTS SCOTLAND AWARD:
Elizabeth Partyka Deputy Director of Channels, STV

As a producer, Tyka worked on a wide variety of genres including children's, being responsible for the Saturday morning network series What's Up Doc, Funhouse and the long running How 2.

She was appointed Controller of Children's Programming for STV in 1995. The department won an RTS Award, a Scottish BAFTA, was nominated for a UK BAFTA as well as a US EMMY. She went on to lead STV's Network Productions division as managing director, responsible for network production across all genres, including the dramas Taggart and Rebus. She was executive producer on the first Antiques Road Trip which has gone on to become a real hit, now in its twelfth series. Tyka moved into broadcasting in 2009, and has been in charge of STV's main channel 3 service since then.

Beyond the success of all the programmes above, she has a very strong track record in charitable fundraising. She developed Cash For Kids while at Radio Clyde and worked on the ITV Telethon in the early nineties. In 2011, she launched the STV Appeal which works with charities across Scotland to highlight and alleviate child poverty. In its first four years, the Appeal has raised over eight million pounds and made a significant difference to communities and individuals alike.

Most recently, Tyka successfully launched STV's city TV channels, STV Glasgow and STV Edinburgh. These new services reach a million people a month across the central belt, and provide new opportunities for young TV talent to progress in their careers.

The RTS Scotland Award was presented to Elizabeth Partyka by Carol Smillie.
