We’ve already received nearly 53,000 nominations for the best in web series, and while all shows submitted will be evaluated by the IAWTV, a committee which will include some of online video’s most well-informed advocates, it’s important to remember that the most-submitted entry in each category will automatically be named as a People’s Choice nominee.
Yesterday, I asked folks on Twitter what shows they were most hoping would get Streamys nominations, and the responses (Engaged: The Series, With the Angels, The Retributioners, RedEarth88, The Guild, EPIC-FU) by and large came from parties who, ahem, had some connection to the show they were rooting for. The moral is this: If you have a series, it’s probably up to you to make sure that it gets considered. It’s the Internet, after all. Everyone is their own PR agent.
