The Royal Television Society (RTS), Britain’s leading forum for television and related media, has announced the winners for the national RTS Student Television Awards 2024, sponsored by 4Skills – Channel 4’s nationwide training and development strategy. Hosted by rapper, author and broadcaster Guvna B, the winners were crowned at the prestigious awards ceremony at the IET, Savoy Place on the Friday 21st June. The RTS Student Television Awards is an annual celebration, showcasing the talent, potential and enthusiasm of students across the UK, identifying exceptional skills and craftsmanship.  

 The National Film and Television School took home the most wins this afternoon, receiving eight awards across the 24 categories with five of the organisation’s students winning each craft award, including Camera Work, Editing, Production Design, Sound and Writing for the postgraduate categories. Additionally, three projects from the National Film and Television School achieved two awards during the ceremony – Crab Day, Jellyfish and Lobster and With Woman – with each project receiving both a crafts and genre award.  

 The newly formed Factual categories, now divided into Factual Short Form and Factual Long Form,  crowned Strongwoman for Undergraduate and Death at Sea for Postgraduate in the Factual Short Form categories. Walking the Labyrinth took home the Undergraduate Factual Long Form award, and With Woman received the Postgraduate award.
