New award category for 2022

2022 will also see a brand-new category for Production Management, with entries accepted from any genre of programming, to celebrate excellence in managing a complex project from the ground up whilst working towards a creative vision.

Other categories recognise a range of crafts from Production Design, Sound and Photography.

Chair of the Awards, Ade Rawcliffe, said: “Over the past year it has been incredible to watch the industry bounce back and recover, creating impactful and innovative high-quality content that is a testament to the UK television community. The RTS Craft & Design Awards is a great opportunity to celebrate this extraordinary work and the widest range of talent; and we are very much looking forward to welcoming entries for this year.”

Budget and time scale of the project, as well as diversity in the industry and the wider community will be carefully considered with each entrant.
