Broadcast TECH’s prestigious Young Talent Awards, backed by sponsor Procam, returns this year, honouring outstanding individuals under 30 years old working in technology and post-production.

Young Talent Awards 2017

The 10 categories include offline editor, audio mixer, colourist, VFX artist, engineer and runner. There is also a new category for those working in VR/AR, as well as an award recognising the best young women working in TV technology.

Reflecting on winning the Young Producer of the Year prize in 2014, Raucous Productions development executive James Emtage said: “It was a real honour. The fact that the awards focus on the under-30s gives a huge boost to young people in the industry, especially those who like to experiment with new technology.”

Laura Howarth-Kirke, a previous winner of the Women in Technology award, said: “Being nominated meant being recognised for my work inspiring women and young people about technology. I was elated when I won because I am passionate about this subject and it makes me stand out from the crowd to prospective employers.”
