Streamy Awards are Today.

“Content creators who are making web stuff are legitimate quality creators” (no shit Chris Hardwick!) “And we’re gonna celebrate ‘em. We’re gonna give ‘em awards!” (Thank you Chris Hardwick!)

You can watch the Streamy’s live streaming HERE. I will also be AT the Streamy awards, covering the event for the LA Weekly.  So stay tuned for my article on show recommendations, digital biz info & creator tips coming out next week.

For the past few years (this is only the 3rd annual) these awards have been patting the same group of creators on the back and congratulating each other, and based on the nominee list, it doesn’t look like this year is much different. But as more quality content (yours) arrives on the scene, these awards will get more competitive and hopefully help driving views towards good content as opposed to just honoring those who are able to gain a following.

WGA Awards Call For Submissions In New Media And Video Game Categories – DEADLINE.com

The WGA is calling for submissions for their New Media and Video Game category.  You do NOT need to be a Guild member for your work to be considered, but your series must have been written and produced under a WGA collective bargaining agreement.  It also must have aired between 12/1/11 and 11/30/12

There are no minimums to produce your new media series under a WGA contract, meaning everyone can pretty much work for free if you want.  You do have to pay yourself something, but it can be $1.00.

For more info on how to register your next project with the WGA and be eligible for the awards next year click HERE.  For more info on submitting your WGA registered project this year, check out this article on Deadline.com:
