Craft and Design Awards
The Royal Television Society has announced the winners of the Craft & Design Awards 2017 at a glittering ceremony in central London.
The awards recognise the huge variety of skills involved in programme production from editing to lighting, and costume design to digital effects.
BBC dramas lead the way in nominations. Taboo, which stars Tom Hardy is up for six awards, whilst Broken and Three Girls received four nominations each.
Three Girls director Philippa Lowthorpe received a nomination in the Director - Drama category alongside Euros Lyn for Damilola, Our Loved Boy and Julian Jarrold for The Witnesses for the Prosecution, all for BBC One.
The Awards celebrate excellence in broadcast television and aim to recognise the huge variety of skills and processes involved in programme production.
Awards are presented in 11 categories including: Design, Make Up Design, Costume Design, Production Design, Effects, Directors, Photography, Lighting and Multicamera, Sound, Editing and Music. In addition, there are three awards given at the discretion of the Judges: Design & Craft Innovation, Judges’ and Lifetime Achievement Awards. Entries are not accepted for these categories but the RTS welcomes suggestions.
The 2016 Awards will see the extension of the Director’s category. Due to the large number of entries received last year, this category will now recognise achievement in three sections: comedy drama/comedy situation, drama and documentary/factual and non-drama productions. Awards will also be given in the following areas: Design, Make Up Design, Costume Design, Production Design, Effects, Photography, Lighting and Multicamera, Sound, Editing and Music.
