#DigitaliSAwards #DigitaliSMediaAwards

The Inaugural SCREEN NATION DIGITAL-iS MEDIA AWARDS presented in conjunction with Vox Africa (Sky218 ) and sponsored by Google and Afrinolly will showcase the best online work made by black British and international digital media creatives working across short film, web series, music promos, blogs, magazines, social networks and more. The prestigious event will take place on Tuesday 17th December at Google London HQ and will be hosted by James Sherwood, presenter of Afrobuzz on Vox Africa. Proceedings will also be streamed live on Google+ Hangout, with highlights of the event broadcast on Vox Africa (Sky218). SceneTV is the exclusive online media partner and Tamara Event Designers are the event mngnt partner.

The awards highlight the new born media maker who can wake up, write, cast and fund a project online, record and edit with a mobile device, launch a YouTube channel to distribute the content, design a blog to publicise their work and find an audience via any one of a number of social networks such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and more. The new digital era continues to grow from strength to strength. With the constant debate about the lack of diversity across mainstream media channels, the Screen Nation Digital-iS awards is a great way to give new voices a platform and recognise the wealth of talent succeeding in the digital arena.
