The talent, skills, and creativity of television industry professionals and student filmmakers in Wales were last tonight (February 27) celebrated at the RTS Cymru Awards 2020.
The awards, held in partnership with Whisper Cymru, were hosted by popular television presenters Sean Fletcher and Ruth Wignall.
Guests at a capacity auditorium at Cineworld in Cardiff saw the winners of the five industry categories and the four student categories come to the stage to receive the prestigious RTS trophy for their entries.
Judith Winnan, Chair of RTS Cymru Wales, said: “It’s been a real privilege to celebrate the incredible talent here in Wales with these new industry awards and I want to thank all the sponsors, RTS Cymru Wales committee members and of course all the entrants who supported tonight’s ceremony and made it possible. The standard of what we’ve seen tonight from students and the industry is just thrilling and I very much hope we can grow these awards further with other industry categories to recognise more of the exciting work coming out of Wales.”
In addition to the long-standing students’ honours, the annual RTS Cymru awards were this year extended to allow broadcasters and independent producers to submit entries in the new Industry categories.
The shortlists were chosen by expert juries made up of experienced industry and educational professionals for each of the categories.
