The winner of the TiCA was Paul Berriff OBE, who has spent 40 years behind the camera, shooting or producing. The award was introduced by GTC Ambassador Keith Massey and the Award was presented by last year's TiCA winner Keith Gibson.

 “It was good to be at our first GTC Awards night, the awards are a great way to recognise and celebrate excellence amongst cameramen and camerawomen.

“It was also an opportunity for us to meet and network members of the GTC, some of who are existing Performance clients or have recently taken advantage of our new Public Liability Insurance Scheme that we launched in partnership with the GTC on 1st May 2017. If you would like more information on this, feel free to get in touch with me”, said Michael Wood, Head of Performance
