The Royal Television Society has opened entries for the RTS Student Television Awards 2014. The Awards, which recognise the best in student television from across the UK, are celebrating their twentieth year.

Starting this year, entries will now be accepted from any students attending higher education. A new 'Open Award' category has been created for films that are a maximum of three minutes in length and of any subject matter. Awards will be also presented at the National Awards Ceremony for Best Camera, Best Editing and Best Sound. RTS has said entries will not be accepted for these categories but will be awarded at the judges' discretion.
"Entries should show outstanding visual and aural creativity, a mastery of craft skills, innovation, initiative and story-telling," a statement said.
