The RTS Young Technologist Awards seek to advance education in the science, practice, technology and art of television and its allied fields.

Aimed at early career engineers in broadcasting or its related industries, the Awards celebrate the new talent making its mark on the industry. The Awards are open to those working for fewer than five years within the technical side of broadcasting or its related industries.

Ahead of the Awards presentation, a keynote speaker and panel discussion were held at the event focusing on the key technologies and skills for the future of the industry including remote production, image robotics and live broadcasts.

The RTS Young Technologist Awards were established by the RTS with funds received from the family of A.M. Beresford-Cooke – a distinguished engineer who significantly contributed to the development of British broadcasting technology through his work on towers and masts for VHF and UHF transmission.
