We try to be VERY sparing with appeals to vote for us in various online awards/contests. Most of them are pure link baiting and we don’t like to waste our fans’ time. Last year we entered the YouTube and Yahoo awards (which we won’t be doing this year). So, we’re putting our eggs in one basket for the new awards show on the block that we would really love to participate in: The Streamy Awards.
The biggest major New Media Blogs, NewTeeVee, Tilzy.tv, Tubefilter are co-hosting this new awards show, with the aim to make the first really “classy” award for New Media productions. This is the first year for it and we’d love to have The Guild be nominated, which depends on audience votes to get to the top 5. After that, industry professionals choose the winners.
The deadline for nominations is midnight Jan 23rd (Friday). If you could spare a moment, we’d love for you to go to Streamys.org consider us in the following categories:
Best Comedy Web Series: The Guild
Best Directing for a Comedy Web Series: Sean Becker
Best Writing for a Comedy Web Series: Felicia Day
Best Male Actor in a Comedy Web Series: Sandeep Parikh, Jeff Lewis or Vincent Caso (Zaboo, Vork or Bladezz)
