The RTS has opened entries for the RTS Programme Awards 2022.

New for this year, two award categories have been renamed, including RTS Network of the Year, previously known as RTS Channel of the Year, which explicitly recognises the performance of a single broadcast channel, network or streaming service. Additionally, Limited Series replaces the Mini Series category, which highlights self-contained drama series with a closed-ended story arc.

Chair of the Awards, Kenton Allen, said: ““It has been an incredibly challenging year, possibly the most difficult production environment any of us have experienced in our lifetimes. Despite this, the phenomenal creative talents of the entire UK industry, both in front of and behind the camera have managed to produce a remarkable year of record breaking, genre‐defining programming, avidly consumed by audiences all over the world. A remarkable achievement given the exceptional circumstances. We are very much looking forward to reviewing the entries and celebrating everyone’s passion, professionalism and immense dedication in March.”

The 2022 RTS Programme Awards will be presented on Tuesday 29 March 2022, with nominations being announced in early March. Closing date for entries is Friday 10 December 2021.
