25th British Academy Cymru Awards are now open for entry
The 25th British Academy Cymru Awards are now open for entry with new eligibility criteria.
Today, BAFTA Cymru launches call for entries for the anniversary year of Cymru Awards.
Broader criteria ensures all Welsh talent working on UK productions now eligible.
The 25th ceremony, which will celebrate Welsh talent across film and television production and craft and performance roles will take place on 2 October at St David’s Hall.
Individuals and companies are invited to enter productions that have had their first broadcast transmission or screened at an approved film festival between 1 April, 2015 and 31 March 2016 by the entry deadline of 26 April.
Having reviewed the eligibility criteria for last year’s Awards, BAFTA Cymru is now encouraging Welsh individuals who have worked on Welsh or UK productions – rather than solely Welsh productions – to enter into any one of the 16 craft and performance categories. This change will ensure that BAFTA in Wales can recognise the work of talented individuals who are working on network productions in craft or performance roles across the UK.
Hannah Raybould, Director of BAFTA Cymru, says: “We are eager to recognise the excellence of Welsh talent working in UK film and television production and our new eligibility criteria will allow us to engage with a broader pool of professionals and shine a light on their recent achievements. BAFTA Cymru exists to celebrate Welsh creative media excellence.”
