Royal Television Society opens entries for student television awards 2018Posted: 4 August, 2017
The Royal Television Society (RTS) has opened entries for the RTS Student Television Awards 2018. The awards recognise work created by undergraduate and postgraduate students attending higher education institutes across Ireland and the UK.
Many DIT students have won RTS Student Awards, most recently Ciarán McNamara, a 2016 DIT graduate of Film & Broadcasting, won the Irish stage of the award for a film he directed while studying at DIT.

The awards are presented in six categories: Animation, Comedy & Entertainment, Drama, Factual, News and Short Feature. The jury is looking for pieces that show outstanding visual and aural creativity, a mastery of craft skills, innovation, initiative and story-telling. The RTS will also be looking for pieces that reflect diversity both within student filmmaking and wider society across all of its awards categories.
All entries must be produced during the 2016/2017 academic year and submitted using the RTS Online Awards Entry System by Friday 20 October 2017. Undergraduate entries will first be judged by the Irish RTS Centre in winter 2017. The winning films from each RTS Centre Student Awards will then be judged for the overall award in April 2018. Postgraduate entries qualify automatically for national assessment.
