RTS Craft & Design Awards 2010/2011 Call For Entries

The Royal Television Society (RTS), Britain's leading forum for television and related media, has launched the RTS Craft & Design Awards 2010/2011.
The Awards recognise the huge variety of skills and processes involved in programme production, from costume design and digital effects to editing and lighting.
Nigel Pickard, Group Director, Family Entertainment and Drama at Zodiak Media Group, is chairing this year's awards. The judging panels will be drawn from leading broadcasters including BBC, ITV, C4, S4C, Channel 5 and Sky.
The awards are designed to recognise the wealth of talent within the industry and the various categories highlight achievements from across the board.
Nigel Pickard, Chair of the RTS Craft & Design Awards, said: "These awards are an excellent way of recognising the extraordinary breadth of talent we have within the creative content industry. UK television would suffer without their innovation, skill and dedication."
