Screen Nation Digital-iS Media Awards nominations announced

ANTICIPATED: The 13th Screen Nation Digital-iS Media Awards

THE FOURTH Screen Nation Digital is Media Awards returns once again to showcase the best online work made by black British professional and non-professional digital media creatives working across short film, web series, music promos, blogs, magazines, podcasts, talk shows, social networks and more.

The event will take place on Sunday 14 January 2018 at its new home of Tiger Tiger right in the heart of London’s west end.

Fronting the show will be two very diverse but distinct creative talents; actor, writer, producer and all around loveable dad, Nii Odartei Evans who hosts alongside actress, writer and twerk fitness guru Kelechi Okafor. Angelica ‘GeGe’ Bagot (@TribalUnicorn), the high energy creative online entrepreneur is the newly appointed Creative Director.

The ceremony and behind the scenes is set to be streamed live onYouTube and Facebook Live and highlights of the event will be broadcast on a Sky channel at a later date.

The Screen Nation Awards as always highlights the new born media maker who can wake up, write, cast, crew 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, Snapchat, Periscope and more.

With the constant debate about the lack of inclusion across mainstream media channels, the Screen Nation Digital is Media Awards is a great way to provide emerging voices with a platform that recognises and rewards the wealth of talent succeeding in the digital arena.

The Digital is Media Awards celebrates excellence by black media professionals and the public working to produce innovative, interactive video content, apps, social media campaigns, games and web channels. The awards also champion outstanding web shows from channels that achieve scale, volume and noise, no matter what their budgets.
