The Royal Television Society (RTS) has opened entries for the RTS Student Television Awards 2015. The Awards recognise the best in student television from across the UK.

This year will see the launch of a News category. Nominations will be accepted from students studying broadcast journalism and related courses at both Undergraduate and Postgraduate level. Awards will also be given for categories including Animation, Comedy & Entertainment, Drama, Factual and Open.

In addition, Undergraduate and Postgraduate Awards will also be presented for Camerawork, Editing and Sound. Entries will not be accepted for these categories but will be awarded at the judges' discretion.

Stuart Murphy, Chair of the RTS Student Television Awards and Director, Sky Entertainment Channels, said: "The RTS Student Television Awards are an important showcase of the extraordinary talent coming out of our universities today. These students will be the future of broadcasting and it is important to recognise and support them. The 2015 Awards will see the introduction of a News category. This is an important addition and we felt it was time to include and recognise the unique set of skills required for this genre of programming, by offering a standalone Award."
