I’m at the RTS Television Journalism Awards. I’ve been a juror for a decade, following a journalism career producing for the likes of the BBC Newsnight, Channel 4 News, ABC News and reporting for the World Service and BBC Reportage.

The RTS is the opportunity to look at trends, meet old friends and make new acquaintances and of course see if the programme you voted for won.

I’m a seasoned photographer, so here in photos is my flashback of the RTS Awards.
