Streamy Awards Returning in 2013, Open for Submissions
Online video kudos The Streamy Awards will return for a third outing next year.
Creators and Tubefilter founders Drew Baldwin and Joshua Cohen and Dick Clark Productions Digital VP Ariel Elazar announced Thursday that the event is now taking submissions. Winners in the slew of categories -- Best Actor and Best Actress, Best Online Musician and Best Comedy Series among them -- will be chosen on Feb. 17, 2013.
The Streamys, which launched in 2009, have not been held since the second event in 2010.
“This year we have seen explosive growth in online video as mainstream audiences are embracing this revolutionary new medium," said Baldwin. "With major investments in original programming and new advances in technology, creators -- both indie and studio alike -- have been blowing the roof off with their original programming. We can’t wait to see what this year’s crop of submissions produces.”
Staying true to the medium, the February awards show will be streamed live online from the Hollywood Palladium.
Submissions can be made at the Streamys website, which also hosts the complete list of categories.
