GTC 2013 Awards Shortlist Announced

The Guild of Television Cameramen announces the shortlist of nominee cameramen for its 2013 Awards.
The nomination period included programmes transmitted from 1 January through 31 December 2012. Programmes transmitted since that date can still be nominated by GTC members for 2014 Awards.
"The GTC awards are unique in being made by broadcast television cameramen in recognition of the work of their fellow professionals," comments Chris Owen, ITV's Head of Cameras at The London Studios. "Awards for Excellence form the largest category, additional presentations being the GTC Seal of Approval for innovative technology and the Mike Baldock Award for working in difficult or dangerous conditions.
"Presentations will be made at an awards ceremony on Saturday 11 May as part of a GTC social event to be held at Upper Aynho near Banbury. The day will include the GTC's annual general meeting.
"The awards voting panel will be chaired by David G. Croft, former BBC producer/director and now Head of the Television Faculty at The National Film & Television School in Beaconsfield. The panel will include former winners of the Awards for Excellence, a former winner of the GTC stills competition, working cameramen, lighting directors and lighting cameramen."
"We are really keen to recognise excellent camera work through all the genres," adds GTC Chair Keith Massey. "We have nominations for camerawork across a very wide range of categories. These range from regional productions to large-scale networked events like the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games."
