The 2013 Streamy Awards: A trivia challenge
In the sprawling red carpet that is Hollywood awards season, the Streamys fall directly between the Grammys and the Oscars—in both style and purpose.
Founded in 2008, the event honors excellence in Internet media production, from the best music and original programming to choreography and individual achievements by actors and actresses. And given the rise of YouTube as an entertainment destination and transmedia platform, this year’s edition—hosted by Nerdist mastermind Chris Hardwick—should be the biggest and best gala yet.
The Streamy Awards will be live-streamed from the sold-out Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles at 6pm ET on Feb. 17, 2013. But we’d like to take you one step closer than that.
As a media sponsor, the Daily Dot has a pair of tickets to the Streamys to giveaway to one lucky reader. To enter, take our Web series challenge about this year's nominees and submit your answers in our comments section below (or just tell us why you deserve to go). One winner will be chosen at random.
