The ScreenSkills High-end TV Skills Fund this year sponsored the photography and lighting, fiction award in order to highlight the work of industry contributions to the skills fund. The Little Drummer Girl scooped the award, beating Killing Eve, Patrick Melrose and Collateral.

Killing Eve and Patrick Melrose each won two awards, while A Very English Scandal triumphed three time. Emma Thomas was honoured with this year’s BAFTA Craft Special Award in recognition of her contribution to the industry as a scrip supervisor, a shortage grade in which the HETV Skills Fund will be investing in 2019-20.

We want to congratulate her and all winning productions and thank all for their contributions to the High-end TV Skills Fund which supports training in the screen industry:
