The Snapchat scripted series, “SnapperHero,” cleaned up with a total of 6 nominations, while “Epic Rap Battles of History,” “Video Game High School,” “Bootleg Universe” and “The Hotwives of Orlando” also stood out, earning a handful of nominations. The Streamys Blue Ribbon Panel, a judging body of creators, executives, and other experts from the online video industry, will declare the winners. There are also two fan-voted award, Entertainer of the Year and Show of the Year, so make sure to vote for those before September 17. 

Staying true to the innovative nature of the online videos they honor, this year’s award show features the addition of several new awards, including new subject awards for Lifestyle channels and Documentary or Investigating series, Breakout Creator and Breakthrough Artist awards, which recognize up-and-coming digital creators and musicians who have no previous nominations, and the introduction of the Social Video category featuring Instagram, Snapchat, and Vine

“If the strength of this year’s nominees is any indication, we are on track for the biggest Streamys ever,” said Streamy Awards creator Drew Baldwin in a release. “This past year, video creators have inspired, educated, and entertained us like never before—and I can imagine no better way to celebrate our community’s achievements than with dick clark productions and VH1 for our first-ever television and digital broadcast.”
