DeWolfe, Anderson to receive Vanguard Award

The Producers Guild of America is presenting its Vanguard Award to MySpace CEO and co-founder Chris DeWolfe and president and co-founder Tom Anderson.

Kudo, which recognizes achievements in new media and technology, will be presented at the Producers Guild Awards ceremonies Jan. 24 at the Hollywood Palladium.

“Tom and Chris created a lifestyle portal that redefines the Internet for people around the world,” said awards co-chairs David T. Friendly and Laurence Mark. “Their vision resulted in an environment where society interacts at a whole new level.”

DeWolfe and Anderson created MySpace in 2003 and sold it two years later to News Corp.

Previous recipients of the Vanguard Award include YouTube founders Chad Hurley and Steve Chen, Will Wright, George Lucas and James Cameron.
