The Royal Television Society (RTS) has shortlisted the nominations for the national RTS Student Television Awards 2024, sponsored by 4Skills - Channel 4’s nationwide training and development strategy. The winners will be crowned at an awards ceremony held on Friday 21st June, hosted by rapper, author and broadcaster Guvna B.

Across the 24 competitive categories, which honour the best audiovisual work produced by undergraduate and postgraduate students in the UK, 25 institutions were nominated. This year, the National Film and Television School led the way with 10 nominations across postgraduate categories followed by the University of the West of England who received four nominations for projects "Cowboys vs Prairie Dogs", "Singularity", "Doggerland", and "Grasping The Nettle."

For 2024, the categories for Factual content have been updated and separated to Factual Short Form and Factual Long Form. Projects nominated in the undergraduate Factual Short Form category include "Beyond Borders" from Sheffield Hallam University, "Dragons" from Bath Spa University, and "Strong woman" from University of Stirling.

The new Factual Long Form category saw three nominations for postgraduate projects all from the National Film and Television School. Furthermore, the Environment and Sustainability category has been renamed Saving The Planet and has shortlisted three undergraduate projects and three postgraduate projects from Aberystwyth University, UWE, Bristol, University of Cumbria, University of the West of England and the National Film & Television School, respectively.

Sinéad Rocks, Managing Director, Nations and Regions at Channel 4 and Chair of the RTS Student Television Awards, said: “It feels like every year, we are taken aback by the standard of work submitted to the RTS student awards - and this year is no exception. The new categories have opened up the awards to even more incredible projects from across the UK, demonstrating that the future of television production is looking very bright indeed. I look forward to celebrating this excellence alongside some of the key figures in our industry at this year’s awards ceremony in June.”
