RTS Craft & Design Awards 2018 winners announced

Reading time: 1 minutes and 29 seconds

The winners of the Royal Television Society Craft & Design Awards 2018 were announced earlier this week at a glitzy awards ceremony at the London Hilton.

We were extremely pleased to see Directors UK members triumph in three of the four directing categories.

Michael Lennox won the Director – Comedy Drama/Situation Comedy award for Channel 4’s Derry Girls.

While Stephen Frears won the Director – Drama award for BBC One’s A Very English Scandal.

And in a brand new category for this year’s awards, Nikki Parsons took home the inaugural Director – Multicamera award for BBC One’s Strictly Come Dancing.

In the last directing category, Deeyah Khan won the Director – Documentary/Factual & Non Drama award for ITV’s White Right: Meeting the Enemy.

At one stage, the Royal Television Society didn’t have any directing categories at its awards ceremonies. Following a campaign led by Directors UK, a single director category was introduced in 2015, with a second, third and now fourth category added in the intervening years. So it’s wonderful to see so much directing talent rewarded at this year’s ceremony.

A whole host of talent in other craft areas was also recognised across the categories. You can find a full list of winners at the RTS website.

Congratulations to our members and all the other winners.
