Categories cover Film, Streaming Episodic Content (Series), Radio, Music and Streaming events and Companies and Providers who are helping to facilitate the streaming entertainment industry.
The Streaming Entertainment Awards Show will also feature panels, a live and streaming awards show, speakers, and more to come as we flex out all of the components.
Our main focus is to support and promote all types of streaming media.
Awards & Prizes
The first year prize will include a Framed Certificate for the winners with them being named "Best of.." in their related category and/or categories.
We are seeking to recognize projects, individuals, creators, companies, performers and also behind-the-scenes talent as well as Producers and more.
We will work diligently to have some additional prizes available, however, at this point the first year project is still gaining traction.
We do plan on building alumni of the Show/Festival/Event that will be called SEA-RCH'ers. Basically any recipients or nominees will be asked to stay in contact to serve as judges and presenters and industry experts in coming years as the event grows.
