Nominations are now open for the 2020 GTC Awards. The 2020 Awards include content transmitted (including on digital channels or online) from 1 January 2019 to 31 December 2019, with nominations closing on 7 January 2020.
If you see a programme you think worthy of an award click here to make your nomination for the 2020 Awards (only GTC members may make nominations). When nominating for Awards for Excellence, please give as much detail as you can, including, if possible, the name of the cameraman or camera supervisor.
These awards are given specifically for camerawork and not for the production as a whole. Where more than one cameraman has been involved on a production, please clearly indicate the specific episode or sequence or cameraman you are nominating. It will help the Awards Committee if you can include information e.g. title, transmission date, time, channel, production company, and any other details to ease the process of obtaining copies of the programmes for judging.
GTC members can also nominate for these GTC Awards:
