2014 Readers' Choice Awards: Now Accepting Nominations

Article Featured Image

We're getting the programme ready for this year's Streaming Forum in June, and once again one of the highlights of the event will be the presentation of our annual Streaming Media European Readers' Choice Awards—the only awards programme in the industry that lets end users vote on the products, services, and technologies that they use to create and deliver online video content.

Today we begin accepting nominations from both vendors and end users, and we'll continue accepting nominations until 2 April. Our editorial staff will evaluate all the nominations to make sure they're legitimate and assigned to the proper categories, and then we'll announce the nominees on 11 April, at which time we'll open up the voting. We'll announce the shortlist of the top three finalists in each category on 30 May, and then present the winners on 24 June at Streaming Forum at the Park Plaza Victoria in London. 

We'll also post winners online and print them in the Autumn issue of the European edition of Streaming Media magazine. You can see a list of the 2013 winners here.
