RTS North West Announce Awards Shortlist

News Image
The Royal Television Society (RTS) North West Centre has announced the shortlist for its annual awards at an event hosted by CBBC presenter Lauren Layfield and Blue Peter's Lindsey Russell at Salford's Lowry Theatre.

RTS received a record number of entries for the Awards, which aim to recognise the wealth of creative talent in the region and honour the work of production teams, writers, presenters and actors across genres including comedy, drama, factual, current affairs and kids.

The Centre has renamed the Best Learning or Education Programme Category in honour of the journalist and executive producer Katy Jones who passed away earlier this year.

Alex Connock, Chair of the RTS North West Centre and MD of Shine North, said: "The shortlist for the RTS North West Awards this year is truly impressive. From a record-breaking 240 entries our Judges have debated, and championed their choices."
 
The winners will be announced at an Awards Ceremony, hosted by Ted Robbins, on Saturday 14 November at Hilton Deansgate, Manchester.
