Everyone’s favorite online award show, the Streamy Awards is quickly approaching. For the 4th year in a row, the Streamy’s will be held in honor of the hard working people responsible for creating and producing online video content. Last year, the Streamy Awards garnered over 7million live and VOD views, and this year, expect many more.
Original online video content has exploded in terms of popularity and exposure, and in response, the Streamys have upped the ante and added several new award categories and you, the viewer get to nominate your favorite content creators in areas like gaming, sports, pranks, science and education, kids and family and more. They’ve even added three categories devoted solely to Vine – Comedian, Creativity and Viner of the year. I’m looking at you Destorm.
Recognizing the vital role that audiences play in the online community, the Streamys have streamlined the official nomination process by putting fan participation at the heart of it. Fans can now select one nominee for each category and the entrant in each category with the most fan submissions will automatically become one of the official nominees.
The remainder of the official nominees and winners of the Streamy Awards will be determined again by the Streamys Blue Ribbon Panel, a select group of leaders currently shaping the future of online entertainment. They include creators, executives, and other experts in the online video industry.
You had better hurry though, nomination submission opened tonight, July 8, at 9 pm PT/ 12 am ET and will close Sunday, July 27th. Head to http://www.streamys.org/ to vote or simply click here.
