Congratulations to all the winners of GTC Awards for 2010 which were presented at the BFI Southbank, London on Tuesday 28 September.

TiCA 

Bill Vinten

The TiCA is awarded to an individual who has furthered the cause of the GTC by fostering and improving the art and craft of the professional television cameraman over many years.

This year the TiCA was awarded to Bill Vinten, son of the founder of 100-year-old camera support manufacturers Vinten. More details here.

GTC Fellowships

Fellowship of the GTC, which includes free lifetime membership of the GTC, is granted to a GTC member who, in the opinion of the majority of the GTC Council, has 'served the GTC in an exceptional and exemplary manner'.

This year, GTC fellowships are awarded to:

Brian Rose, GTC Chairman from 2007–2010,  who remains on Council in the new post of GTC Welfare Officer

John Hoare who acted as GTC Treasurer from 2004 to 2010 and also remains on Council.


Mike Baldock Award

John Tye for his work for the charity Dreamflight
Mike Baldock was Head of Cameras at Thames Television, Teddington, at the time the GTC was formed. After his untimely death, an award was created to encourage cameramen at the beginning of their careers. More recently the Mike Baldock Award has been given to a person who in the opinion of the Council has rendered a valuable service to the TV industry or an organisation; that nominee need not be a GTC member.

Dreamflight is a charity that changes young lives through taking seriously ill and disabled children, without their parents, on the holiday of a lifetime to Orlando. The charity's John Cavanagh organises a team of ‘self-shooting’ cameramen to film and edit documentaries for each of the 12 regional groups on the trip. Whilst some of the cameramen are professionals (and GTC members), others are not.

John Tye is a long-standing cameraman for the charity and his endeavours have raised the profile of camerawork in the charity arena. Former GTC chairman, Mike Solomons has acted as toastmaster for many Dreamflight events and feels that the Award to John would be excellent. As Mike says, “even if he is not young in years, he is certainly young in his television career and Mike Baldock would have been delighted to support such a worthy recipient”.
