Membership categories

The GTC invites applications for membership from those engaged in the television and moving image industries.

Please note: Camera professionals, students, DITs, vision engineers and others are all eligible to apply under our Full, Associate and Student categories. Those working outside the television industry may apply under our Affiliate grade.
Free Academic membership is offered to those working in educational establishments and are directly involved with education in television and associated media studies.
If you are unsure of whether you will be eligible to join, or which category to apply for, please contact the GTC administrator for advice.

While the form still has a place to enter the names of 'sponsor' GTC members, we no longer require this and will soon be removing it from the form - so please do not be put off from applying to join if you don't have any contacts to enter there.
