News Image
The Royal Television Society (RTS) is looking for outstanding technologists of the future as it opens entries for the RTS Young Technologist Award 2016. Aimed at those at the early stages of their career, the award celebrates the new talent making its mark on the industry.

The winner will receive an all-expenses paid trip to IBC – both the exhibition and the conference – as well as a pass to the RTS London Conference 2016. At these events they will have the chance to learn about the fast changing world of video content and distribution. The runner up will receive the Coffey Award and a technical book of choice.

Chair of the RTS Young Technologist Award jury, Terry Marsh, said: "Now more than ever before, technology and broadcasting are inextricably linked and bright young technologists are vital to the future of the industry. This award presents talented newcomers with the opportunity to stand out amongst their peers and gives the winner access to events that will no doubt help them further their career."

To apply for the RTS Young Technologist Award 2016, applicants can download a form via the RTS website (link below) and should submit it electronically by 5pm on Monday, 16 May 2016.

The winner of last year's award was Michael Colyer, Special Cameras Engineer at Formula One Management Ltd. Michael impressed the jury with his obvious commitment to the industry, his love of innovative special camera systems, and his technical know-how.
The Young Technologist Award was established by the RTS with funds received from the family of A.M. Beresford-Cooke – a distinguished engineer who contributed much to the development of British broadcasting technology through his work on towers and masts for VHF and UHF transmission – and their aim is to advance education in the science, practice, technology and art of television and its allied fields.
The award is open to those working within the technical side of broadcasting or its related industries including: broadcasters, production companies and facilities houses, hardware and software suppliers to the industry, telecommunications suppliers of television capacity services, and recognised research institutions which are contributing in a demonstrable way to television in the UK.

Judges will look for applicants who can demonstrate a strong knowledge of the industry and show how the award would enhance their understanding of technology's role in television and its allied fields. Candidates will also need to display excellent communications skills and explain how they will share their understanding.
