The GTC invites applications for membership from those engaged in the television and moving image industries.
£65.00 per annum. To qualify you will be required to have at least three years’ professional experience in any branch of television. You will be entitled to vote on GTC matters, use our official logo, and append MGTC to your name.
£40.00 per annum. This category is appropriate if you have had less than three years’ professional experience in any branch of television. You will be entitled to vote on GTC matters but will not be allowed to use the GTC logo or use the MGTC letters after your name.
* The word 'professional' in these categories refers to camera professionals who earn their living working in the television industry.
£65.00 per annum. There are many people working in the television industry and media who, in the opinion of council, would further or promote the objects of the GTC but do not qualify under any other category. Affiliate members do not have voting rights and may not use the GTC logo.
£20.00 per annum. A suitable category for individuals attending a full or part-time course that is recognised by the Council as being appropriate. Members in this category will automatically be transferred to associate membership at the first renewal following the end of their course. This category does not carry voting rights and members at this grade may not use the GTC logo.
£30 per annum. You may join the GTC as a Retired Member only if you would have qualified for Full Membership in your working capacity. Existing members, who have permanently retired from full-time employment, may change their grade and will retain their voting rights and use the official GTC logo.
Since 2018 Academic membership (for tutors of colleges and establishments of Higher Education whose aims are compatible with the aims of the GTC) has been free. This category of membership caters for universities, colleges and other higher education establishments offering courses that include camera operation to a professional level.
The organisation is the member, with one nominated representative (normally a course lecturer), to be the point of contact. Academic membership has special entitlements, including additional copies of our publication Zerb and the possibility of additional places on our selected workshops for course students (non-members). Please contact the GTC Education Officer, Alan Duxbury, for more details and how to apply.
As a professional Guild with admission criteria, we do all we can to verify that applications for the various categories of membership are valid. The more information about your experience, reference contact details and/or GTC referee names you can give us at the time of making your application, the faster we will be able to process your application, so please include as much relevant information as possible.
To join the GTC as an IAWF member, please visit the IAWF website: www.iawf.org.uk/contact/apply.asp. Your application as either a Full or Associate member will be approved by the IAWF team and you will then be routed back to this site to complete the subscription process.
