RTS opens entries for Young Technologist competition

The UK Royal Television Society (RTS) has opened entries for its Young Technologist Award 2013.

The aim of the award is to advance education in the science, practice, technology and art of television and its allied fields and the winner will receive a trip to The IBC Conference in Amsterdam in September, according to the RTS.

The award is open to early career engineers in the broadcast or related industries and judges will look for applicants who can demonstrate how the award would enhance their understanding of technology’s role in television and its allied fields, and how they will share their understanding.

The Young Technologist Award was established by the RTS with funds received from the family of AM Beresford-Cooke, an engineer who contributed to the development of UK broadcasting technology through his work on towers and masts for VHF and UHF transmission.
