The Guild of Television Cameramen has announced the shortlist of recipients for a new award set up to encourage education and training of camerawork skills within educational establishments.
The Bill Vinten GTC University Award follows collaboration between the GTC and Bill Vinten OBE, one of the guild's most long-standing supporters and sponsors.
It will be funded by a charitable trust set up by Bill Vinten and will focus on providing funding for work experience for potential new entrants to the industry.
The winning camera operators will receive work experience, paid with expenses equivalent to £2,500, plus one year of GTC associate membership.
Two runners-up will receive work experience, paid with expenses equivalent to £750 each, plus one year of GTC associate membership.
The winning faculty, college or university will be awarded the Bill Vinten University Trophy.

The nominees are:
  • Tomaso Aramini, Northern Film School
  • Adam Broder, Cambridge School of Art
  • Ed Gammie, University of York
  • Oliver Hadlow-Martin, University of York
  • Jack Harrison, Bournemouth University
  • Jack Reynolds, Kingston University

24 entrants from eight universities have been received in the first year of the Bill Vinten GTC Award:
  • Birmingham City University
  • Bournemouth University
  • Cambridge School of Art, Anglia Ruskin University
  • Kingston University, Faculty of Science, Engineering and Computing
  • Northern Film School, Leeds Metropolitan University
  • Staffordshire University, Media (Film) Production Course
  • University of the West of England
  • University of York, Department of Theatre, Film and Television

GTC President Dick Hibberd said: "The breadth of the productions has been most heartening, and bodes well for the future of the industry. Whilst some entries have still some way to go, there have been others which have been truly excellent. It is most encouraging to see the skills that have been mastered by the graduates and most reassuring to know that the graduate camera operators have such firm visual foundations."
DoP Anna Carrington added: "I felt honoured to be chosen as one of the judges on the Bill Vinten GTC University awards panel; the standard and quality of some of the films I watched was outstanding. There are some very talented camera graduates out there and I'm glad that the Bill Vinten GTC University award will draw attention to some of that talent."
The Award will take place at the London Studios on October 24.
