22 Oct 2018 :
Jannine Waddell, MBE, Chair of RTS NI Awards Committee & Richard Williams, Chief Executive, Northern Ireland Screen
The RTS Ceremony takes place on Thursday 15th November at the Mac in Belfast.

Jannine Waddell, MBE, Chair, RTS NI Awards Committee said: “The RTS NI Programme Awards are an important showcase of the extraordinary talent evident across Northern Ireland’s creative industries. We seek to recognise programmes and people who have made a positive contribution to the sector in terms of originality and quality.

“The standard gets higher each year and in this our fourth year the judges had a challenging task shortlisting the finalists, given the high quality of drama, entertainment, animation and documentaries now being made in this region as well as comedy, news, current affairs, music and interactive content. We look forward to celebrating the very best creative talent in our screen industry at the Awards next month.”

The RTS NI Programme Awards 2018, with headline sponsor Ka-Boom are delivered in partnership with BBC Northern Ireland, Northern Ireland Screen, Channel 4, and UTV. The Awards Ceremony will be held in The MAC, Belfast on Thursday 15th November, hosted by Coleraine born actress Bronagh Waugh.
