The Royal Television Society (RTS) has launched the RTS Craft & Design Awards 2016.

The Awards celebrate excellence in broadcast television and aim to recognise the variety of skills and processes involved in programme production.

This year, the Director's category has been extended due to the large number of entries received for the 2015 Awards. The category will now recognise achievement in three sections – comedy drama/comedy situation, drama and documentary/factual and non-drama productions.

The full list of Award categories are:

• Design: Recognises achievement in three categories; trails and packaging, programme content sequences and titles.

• Photography: Recognises achievement in location based single camera work in two categories; drama and comedy, and documentary/factual and non-drama productions.

• Lighting and Multicamera: Recognises achievement in three categories; lighting for multicamera, multicamera work and multicamera work – sport. The Multicamera Awards are designed to recognise those who work in studio based or OB multicamera programming across all genres.

• Sound: Recognises achievement in two categories; drama and entertainment and non-drama productions. These Awards recognise the whole sound team and both recording supervisor and mixing supervisor should be named on the entry form.

• Editing: Recognises achievement in four categories; drama, documentary/factual, entertainment and comedy and sport.

• Music: Recognises achievement in two categories; original title music and original score. The titles or score must be specially commissioned for a specific programme.

Cheryl Taylor, Chair of the RTS Craft & Design Awards and Controller of CBBC, said: "These Awards play a vital role in recognising the extraordinary breadth of talent and depth of expertise we have in all areas of production. They are a glowing testimony to Britain's leading force in the creative content industry."

All entries must be submitted using the RTS Online Awards Entry System here.

The deadline for entries is Friday 2 September, 2016.
