The Royal Television Society is an educational charity promoting the art and science of television.
From glamorous award ceremonies to lively debates, the RTS embraces all aspects of television, and is open to anyone with an interest in the medium.
As an educational charity, the RTS encourages and celebrates work in television and its related fields, from finding out how the nation’s favourite shows are made in our Anatomy of a Hit series, to celebrating burgeoning talent at our annual Student Awards.
The industry’s most talented individuals give them an insight into the work that goes into making cutting edge contemporary TV. From Government ministers and CEOs to workshops with great runners, RTS events look at every part of the business.
Their annual Television Journalism, Programme, Craft and Design and Student Awards, celebrate achievements across the broadcasting industry. Each year, the bRTS offer Television Production and Technology bursaries to help those from less affluent backgrounds get a foothold in the industry and Masterclass sessions bring together students, academics and industry heads.
Global television leaders gather to discuss what the future holds for television at our London Conference or the RTS Cambridge Convention. Alongside their engaged community of over 4800 full members, the Society is supported by UK and global broadcasters, producers and consultants, including Principal Patrons BBC, Sky, Channel 4 and ITV.
Originally founded as the Television Society in 1927, the Society was granted its Royal title in 1966 and HRH The Prince of Wales became Patron of the RTS in 1997.
Today, 15 regional and national groups curate lively events and awards around the UK and Ireland, from Glasgow to Galway.
