The awards, for news and current affairs, recognise creative and excellent journalism by organisations whose broadcasts are received in the UK and by the agencies which supply UK news broadcasters.

The RTS Television Journalism Awards was chaired by Richard Sambrook, director of the Centre for Journalism at Cardiff University and a former director of Global News at the BBC. The winners were announced at a ceremony, hosted by Sian Williams, last night at the London Hilton, Park Lane.
