2012 Streaming Media European Readers' Choice Awards: Now Accepting Nominations
Make your nominations for this year's awards in 15 categories, from encoding to webcasting.

Have a favorite encoding tool? A go-to streaming services provider? The perfect TV-over-IP solution? Or did you just see the coolest webcast?

Then make a nomination in those categories—or any of the others—in this year's Streaming Media European Readers' Choice Awards, the only awards program that lets end users vote on the products and services they use everyday. While the nominations are open to any company, product, or service, remember that these awards are specifically for the European market. (You can make a nomination in the U.S. awards here.)

You can complete and submit the nomination form before Monday 6 Friday 10 August. Streaming Media’s editorial team evaluate all submissions to make sure they fit their categories, and final nominees are announced on 17 August when online voting opens. The top 3 finalists in each category will be announced on 27 September, and the winners receive their Award at Streaming Media Europe in London, 16 & 17 October.

Winners are also featured in the Winter issue of Streaming Media's European magazine, on StreamingMediaGlobal.com, and published in StreamingMedia Global Xtra newsletter. Click here for last year's winners.
