Streamin' It Up, Awards Style

Posted By on December 22, 2009, 8:55 AM

Hey kids, have you ever heard of The Streamy Awards? Yeah, me either, at least until last week. --- In the ever growing world of online content it was a foregone conclusion that someone, somewhere was bound to create awards for part of it. In fact at a glancing count there’s about fifty different type of awards for everything from blogging to chatting to viral video. And one of the awards getting recent exposure in the press are The Streamy Awards. Its popularity mainly gained from awarding achievements spurned out of 2007’s Writer’s Strike, which produced online content such as “Epic Fu”, “The Shatner Project”, and “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog.”  And because of the noteriety of many involved with creating, writing and starting in those projects, its started to become treated as a major awards event. As partially seen below.

I get a sense of what you’re thinking. “Gavin, why the hell do I care and why are you posting this?” Well as it turns out, three locally produced web series are currently in the running for different awards.
