Jan Law, Calrec’s Senior Product Technician has received highly commended recognition at the global Rise Awards 2020 virtual ceremony.
Jan was one of only two women to receive this prestigious recognition, coming a very close second in the Engineer category at the Rise Women in Broadcast annual global award ceremony which was held on Tuesday 17th November.
Rise received over 100 submissions in eight categories from across the global broadcast audience, including manufacturers, broadcasters and service providers.
Jan was recognised as a dynamic and innovative engineer who embodies the very best of the broadcasting profession. An independent set of judges from the likes of BT Sport, Grass Valley, Timeline TV, Sky and Red Bee Media shortlisted Janet from a 21-strong list of entries, coming a very close 2nd to Yulia Rozmarin, R&D Project Manager at Live U and beat off tough competition from Abigail Seager, Senior Systems Engineer at BBC News.
Jan Law, Senior Product Technician at Calrec, said: “I am delighted to receive highly commended at the Rise Awards. Being nominated for the RISE Engineer Award is an incredible honour, but to gain recognition against such strong competition is just amazing!
“A huge thank you to everyone at RISE and Calrec. I must also pay tribute to Sally Baines, Calrec’s Production Manager. Sally is dedicated, as we all are, to making sure that the right things are in place, including the right people, and so I have to thank her for having faith in me all those years ago. Without her, none of this would have been possible. Thank Sally for giving me the opportunity and the confidence to move into such a key technical role. This recognition is as much for you as it is for me.”
