It’s the first year that YouTube is setting up this award and the nominees were picked by YouTube and YouTube community members were given five days to vote on their favourites. From the awards page:
2006 was a pioneering year for online video, user-created content and the YouTube community. You let us into your bedrooms, created new forms of entertainment, and radicalized popular culture. Now it’s time to reflect on what a tremendous year it was and recognize the best of the best during the first YouTube Video Awards.
Here are two of my favourite ones:
Awarded Most Creative: Here It Goes Again by OKGo
Awarded Most Adorable: Kiwi! by Madyeti47
