Reading time: 1 minutes and 50 seconds

On Sunday, the BAFTA TV Craft Award winners were announced, and we were pleased to see that our members’ work was recognised across the categories.

The award for Director: Multi-Camera was presented to Nikki Parsons, Ollie Bartlett and Richard Valentine for their work on the Eurovision Song Contest 2023

The award for Director: Factual was presented to Otto Baxter for Not a F***ing Horror Story

The award for Director: Fiction was presented to Peter Hoar, for his work on The Last of Us

Meanwhile, the award for Emerging Talent: Factual was presented to Fred Scott for his work on London Bridge: Facing Terror.

Huge congratulations to all of the above, and all directors whose work was recognised across the categories!

Gender representation in the directing categories

When the BAFTA Craft Award nominations were announced in March, we called out the lack of representation across the directing categories.

“BAFTA told us …that in the three Director categories in the BAFTA Television Craft Awards, the percentage of female to male directors entered for awards consideration was 28% vs 72%; just under three men for every woman, on a par with the percentage of those nominated.  

The figures above are nowhere near representative of the make-up of our society. The BAFTA Craft awards are the most high-profile recognition of behind the camera talent in the UK, and we are an industry with a responsibility to tell stories made by diverse voices. We say the same thing every award season – when is this going to change? 

We’re talking today about gender representation, but we reiterate that it’s important representation and diversity is intersectional.”
