VH1 to Broadcast 2015 Streamy Awards

MTV Networks’ VH1 will be the first TV network to televise the Streamy Awards, which recognize top online-video creators and content.

The 5th Annual Streamy Awards will air live on the cable network and its digital platforms from the Hollywood Palladium on Thursday, Sept. 17, 2015, at 10 p.m. ET (delayed for the West Coast). VH1 cut the deal with the event’s producers, Dick Clark Productions and Tubefilter.

“The VH1 audience is connected on every platform. So it’s a natural for VH1 to celebrate the innovators who, like us, entertain literally millions of viewers,” VH1 president Tom Calderone said in a statement.

Added Assaf Blecher, VP of programming and development for Dick Clark Productions, “VH1 has always embraced cutting edge programming, which makes them the ideal partner for such an innovative show.”

Submissions for this year’s Streamys from both creators and fans are being accepted starting Wednesday and will close June 26. Two Audience Choice awards — Entertainer of the Year and Show of the Year — are determined entirely by fan vote, with the main winners picked by a panel of industry execs and creators.

According to event’s producers, the 4th Annual Streamy Awards last September drew more than 7 million views on YouTube and 2.8 million Vine loops in 24 hours.

This year’s Streamys will add several new categories, including: best social video to include Instagram, Snapchat and Vine; breakout creator; breakthrough music artist; and best documentary or investigative feature.
