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.
The deadline for submitting completed entry forms is Friday 26 September 2014. All forms must be endorsed by the tutor and entered by the college/university involved.
The RTS Student Television Awards 2014 will be presented in May 2015. Undergraduate entries will first be judged at a regional level by their local RTS Centre in winter 2014. The winning films from each RTS Centre Student Awards will then be judged nationally in March 2015 for presentation in May 2015. Postgraduate entries qualify automatically for national assessment.
