UK television and related media forum the Royal Television Society (RTS) has been monitoring the current climate closely and in line with official guidance against large gatherings of people, has made the decision to streamline the format of this year’s Royal Television Society Programme Awards, in partnership with Audio Network, scheduled to take place on Tuesday March 17th.
In order to host the event responsibly, as well as continuing to celebrate the nominees’ achievements, a slimmed down, intimate presentation of the awards will be live-streamed. Nominees and RTS representatives will now be invited to the event with the broader industry able to watch via a live link.
Theresa Wise, CEO of the Royal Television Society said: “While adapting as necessary to the current situation, we aim to continue celebrating the past year of television and excellence in our industry in the best way possible – by honouring nominees and winners through a streamlined event. We look forward to offering everyone the opportunity to join us via live stream as we host the RTS Programme Awards.”
