RTS NI Student Awards Nominees
Broadcaster Jo Scott will host this yearís Royal Television Society Northern Ireland (RTS NI) Student Television Awards which will take place in the Black Box, Belfast on Tuesday 26 March 2019 with UTVís Eden Wilson delivering the keynote speech.

In partnership with Northern Ireland Screen, the RTS NI Student Television Awards recognise the importance of education within the growing creative industry sector in Northern Ireland.

Speaking about the awards, Kieran Doherty, Chair of RTS NI said:

“This is the 6th year of our Student Awards and we have consistently showcased brilliant talent at post and undergraduate level in all manner of disciplines that go into telling great stories, highlighting the exceptional talent emerging from our third level colleges.

“The RTS is first and foremost an educational charity and these awards enable us to celebrate burgeoning talent whilst providing the students with a high-profile platform to show their work.  We have built-up a strong relationship with the local colleges, which play a vital role in ensuring our future talent graduate with the necessary skills ready to start work in the exciting and growing creative industry we now have in Northern Ireland.”

Bernard McCloskey, Head of Education, Northern Ireland Screen said:

“Northern Ireland Screen is delighted to be able to support these awards in partnership with RTS NI. The awards are a great way to nurture and encourage the fantastic emerging creative talent we have here in Northern Ireland.”

Jo Scott, BBC NI Newsline presenter who is hosting the Awards Ceremony says:

“Winning an RTS NI Student Television Award gives our young people a prestigious accolade to help them with their future careers. We have entries from students across Northern Ireland and the talent they display is wonderful as well as giving them the opportunity to network with some of the industry’s biggest names at the Awards Ceremony.”

There are 5 Awards categories for Animation, Drama, Entertainment, Factual and Short Form with an additional Craft Award recognising particular skill in camera work, editing or production design. 

The winners of the Student Awards will go forward to the national RTS Student Media Awards, which will be held in London later this year.
