Bill Vinten GTC University Award - first winners to be announced on 24 October

The Bill Vinten GTC University Award has been created to encourage excellent teaching of camerawork skills within UK educational establishments. The Award is the result of a collaboration between the GTC, spearheaded by Stuart McKears, and Bill Vinten OBE, one of GTC's most long-standing supporters and sponsors.

The inaugural Award ceremony will take place on 24 October from 18.00 to 21.00 at the ITV's London Studios. GTC members are invited to attend and to register at: Numbers are unfortunately limited and tickets will therefore be issued on a first come, first served basis so register soon.

John Henshall, Vice President and co-founder of the GTC, will host the event and deliver the keynote address on "How good camera craft skills will always enhance, and have always enhanced, content".

After the presentation of the trophies, there will be an opportunity to socialise and network with Bill Vinten, the winners, the universities, GTC sponsors and fellow members of the GTC. Light refreshments will be provided.
