Guild of Television Cameramen Announces 2013 Winners

News Image
The Guild of Television Cameramen announced the winners of its 2013 awards during a presentation at the 'A Day in the Country' venue in Aynho, Oxfordshire, on Saturday 11 May.
The awards were announced and presented by the current chair of the GTC, Keith Massey.
This year's top award, the TiCA, went to Charles Lagus who was the BBC’s first natural history cameraman, working with Sir David Attenborough on the broadcaster’s initial nature series.
Sir David recalls: "We simply disappeared for four to six months at a time, armed with nothing more than a couple of letters of introduction and our pockets stuffed with dollar bills. It was just the two of us; we didn’t have a director until about 15 years later!"
The Mike Baldock Award was presented to camera operator and 3D stereographer Holly Bantleman for her work with Raise the Roof in Kenya. She juggles a career in the UK with running the Kenya based charity which she founded at the age of just 24.
The charity is enthusiastically supported by her employer, Telegenic, and many camera crew colleagues on location who are to be seen sporting Raise the Roof tee-shirts. It has already 'raised the roof' on the Barut Youth Development and Sports Centre.
The GTC Seal of Approval for an innovative piece of equipment was awarded to the Sony HDVF-EL75 studio colour viewfinder, praised for its contrast ratio of more than 1,000,000:1, efficient power consumption, wide viewing angle and extremely fast response time, meaning it is possible to focus on fast moving targets with a colour viewfinder.
This year's winners are:

Fred Scott for Atma Refuge Camp, Syria (BBC News), BBC1.

Graham Maunder for Cold Chain Mission, BBC2.

Nat Hill for Coldplay MX World, BBC1.

Richard Cook and Christian and Paola Moullec for Earthflight, BBC HD.

Main 'gold' sponsor for the day was Camera Corps, part of the Vitec Group, which brought along a selection of equipment including Q-Ball remote pan/tilt/zoom/focus heads and controllers for members to view. These were demonstrated by Neil Ashworth, Steve Lundie and Jeff White.
