News Image
The Royal Television Society (RTS) has launched the first RTS Scotland Awards.
The awards will cover production in Scotland across the board, recognising "excellence and innovation" across a range of genres and crafts.
April Chamberlain, co-founder of Glasgow-based production company, The Comedy Unit, will chair the Awards juries.
She said: "With 2014 being such a culturally significant year for Scotland, the RTS felt the time was right to launch the RTS Scotland Awards. The aim of these awards is to recognise the extraordinary talent working across the wide range of programmes now being produced in Scotland and also reflect the current broadcasting landscape, breadth of programming, craft and production skills that make up today's television schedules and beyond."
Bobby Hain, STV Director of Channels and RTS Scotland Awards committee chair, said: "I'm delighted the RTS is to highlight the quality and diversity of work across Scotland and that April Chamberlain has agreed to chair the judging process."
Donalda MacKinnon, Head of Programmes and Services at BBC Scotland, added: "I am very pleased to be working with others to bring the RTS Scotland Awards to life and to create a unique event which will celebrate and promote the wealth of talent we have here in Scotland.
"Our ambition is to complement and support other similar industry awards and in so doing to increase confidence in and around our television production sector."
The closing date for Awards entries is Friday 4 April 2014. All entries must have been aired on TV, distributed for non-broadcast or streamed online for the first time between January and December 2013.
The Awards will be presented on Wednesday 11 June at the Oran Mor, Glasgow.
