GTC announces GTC Awards Day and AGM for members and invited guests  not to be missed
The Guild of Television Cameramen (GTC) has announced the date and venue for its annual awards and AGM for 2017. The day is Sunday 14 May and will run from 09:00 to 22:00.
Sponsors of the day announced so far include Panasonic UK, Camera Corps and Presteigne Broadcast Hire, with support also pledged from ARRI, Aerial Vue, Portaprompt, SNG and Video Europe.

GTC members will be able to try their hand at four fun activities in one-hour sessions throughout the day. This year these activities will be: Hovercraft, 4 x 4 Driving, Dog Agility/Ferret Racing and Archery.

At the end of the morning activity sessions, the GTCs 45th AGM will take place. Members will receive a review of the past year from chairman Graham Maunder together with financial reports and discussion about future plans for the GTC.
Free food and soft drinks are supplied all day.

In the evening, this years awards will be presented. These include GTC Awards for Excellence, Seal(s) of Approval for great kit, and the most prestigious prize: the Television Cameramans Award (TiCA), which is awarded to an individual who has fostered and improved the art and craft of professional television camerawork over many years. The awards ceremony will be streamed live on the internet and an edited highlights package will later be published on the GTC Vimeo page.

There will be a charity raffle with prizes generously donated by industry companies; this year the proceeds will be split between the CTBF and Fight for Sight. So far, we have received generous donations of prizes from Over Exposed, Cache Media, Dan Greenway and Miller Fluid Heads Europe Ltd. 

The whole day will be a great opportunity for networking, making new friends and contacts, seeing new kit and generally having a fun time.

On site during the activities part of the day there will be drones from Aerial Vue, the ARRI Trinity, a chance to try out the latest Panasonic cameras and a 360° demo from VE Group.
