As Gail Renard, Chair of the Guild's TV Committee comments, another letter was sent this year:
In May, the TV Committee wrote to BAFTA after receiving many comments and complaints about how writers are acknowledged in the BAFTA awards.Still, however, the problem persists and that's why the Guild is getting behind the campaign being led by Guild members Danny Stack and Martin Day to get BAFTA to give TV writers their proper place at the main ceremony.
The Guild feels strongly that writers are an integral part of any production; naturally, we'd think the most important. We begin with nothing and turn it into something which is where all creative work begins. We now ask for our place alongside our colleagues in the spotlight.
Danny has written an open letter to BAFTA and there is an ongoing campaign on Twitter.
Guild members are urged to join the Twitter campaign or contact BAFTA directly.
