For Your Consideration...

Hey Folks!

As I'm sure you're aware, by now, "award season" has started. No, you're not going to see the Oscars or Emmy's on TV for a few months... but nominations are being announced and projects are being considered for all the major entertainment awards... including the second annual Streamy Awards. Not familiar with the Streamys? They're the official awards honoring "the highest achievement in open entertainment. Inspired by the independent spirit that drives creativity on the web, the Streamy Awards celebrate those who don’t wait for permission to make and share their art."

Bet you didn't know that web-based entertainment had its own awards, did ya?

Last year's Streamys were a breath of fresh air in the nacent "WebTV" industry - a chance for those of us who work in that field to celebrate the growth of the medium, and honor some of its rising stars. This year's promises to be even bigger, since the webseries world has grown so dramatically.

Submissions to the comittee considerting who to nominate for the awards are open to the public; I know it's a long shot, but I'd LOVE to see one of my web series projects, like Lady Wasteland or Animus Cross added to the roster of the amazing entertainment honored at the awards show in April. You can help one (or both) of these shows get to there by submitting them to the comittee - just visit, or click the boxes below!

You'll note that you can also nominate individuals associated with projects by clicking a link at the top of the Submission page - Best Director, Best Writer, Best Cinematography... you get the picture. I've nominated a few people associated with my projects (check my Twitter Feed to see who and for what). I'd really appreciate it if you could nominate the same people; this gives them a better chance of being considered by the comittee for the awards.

If you have the time, please try to submit every day between now and January 15th, when the submission proecess closes (From The Streamy Comittee: "you can submit one entry per category, per day, until January 15 at"). The more submissions we get, the more likely we are to be considered for a full nomination.

Thanks, from all of us involved in both projects, for your support over the past year... and for the hard work of bringing us to the comittee's attention!!
