GTC Awards for Excellence

Earth's Natural Wonders – Surviving the Extreme: Series 2, Episode 1, BBC ONE
Photography: Will Edwards
TX date/time: 14/2/2018 21.00

Reason for nomination
Extraordinary coverage in a potentially very dangerous location (below a pack of sea ice above a beach at low tide in the Canadian Artic) with two Inuit women collecting mussels. With only 45 minutes to get a complete sequence in the can, Will Edwards showed considerable skill and professionalism with just his director to assist, in very cold, wet conditions in the 2 to 3ft high space between the ice roof and the rocky beach floor. All done with a full-size broadcast camera producing very evocative pictures in the process.
See for a 5-min diary piece on the filming.

Animal with Cameras (episode 1), BBC ONE
Animal Cameras: Chris Watts
TX date/time: 01/02/2018

Reason for nomination
Chris Watts for designing cameras suitable to go on wild animals for this series of Animals with Cameras. Chris designed cameras lightweight enough to go on a variety of animals without compromising their welfare or environment.

Kiri, Channel 4
Director of Photography: Matt Gray
TX date/time: 01/2018

Reason for nomination
Beautifully lit and shot – often unusual framing but always sitting comfortably with the story rather than distracting.

Highlands: Scotland's Wild Heart (Spring), BBC ONE
The Camera Team
TX date/time: 08/01/2018

Reason for nomination
Just spectacular capture of British nature. Less 'song and dance' than other mainstream shows – really nicely done.
