The International Academy of Web Television will honor the best shows on the web on April 15th 2015 in Las Vegas as a part of the NMX / NAB Show

December December 10, 2014 (Las Vegas, NV)

The V in TV stands for visions according to Carrie Preston (True Blood), the host of last years IAWTV Awards Show. Indeed, it is the visionaries of new media that the IAWTV, created by digital content-creators for digital content-creators, was founded to support. The best of this digital content has been honored at the IAWTV Awards Show the last four years.

m really excited about the awards this year, admits Jonathan Robbins, creator of Clutch and star of Out With Dad and the head of the 2015 IAWTV Awards committee, The awards get better every year and I want to continue in that direction. Robbins is glad to have the support of an experienced cast of familiar faces.

  1. Sibley Law, IAWTV Chairman, will continue to work closely with NMX (New Media Expo). 

The IAWTV Awards moved to April for the first time this year due to an exciting opportunity to be part of NAB Show. This will be the biggest and best IAWTV Awards yet! The co-location with and support from NAB Show is going to have a major impact on the event and IAWTV is really going to open some eyes there as well, says Rick Calvert, founder of the New Media Expo.

The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) is the premier advocacy organization for Americas broadcasters and NAB Show is the worlds largest electronic media show. Some of the most compelling video content is created for online consumption, said NAB Executive Vice President Conventions and Business Operations Chris Brown. The talented creative professionals leading this field are exceptional, and we could not be more pleased that they are being honored at NAB Show. These types of content creators represent a growing portion of -NAB Shows attendee base, and the IAWTV Awards Show & Red Carpet event is a great way to recognize those who stand out in this community.

Also joining Robbins are IAWTV Award veterans, and board members April Grant & Amanda Shockley (Indie Intertube) and Jeff Burns (Super Geeked Up) who return to help craft a show to be remembered.

Last year the Academy awarded distinctions to shows from Ireland and Vancouver with nominations from as far away as Australia. Robbins hopes to expand upon that International presence this year. With web series festivals being created across the globe from Hong Kong to Rome to Marseille, the web series community is truly without borders, says Robbins.

Burns adds, We’re thrilled to be partnering with NMX again to recognize the best in original online content at the 2015 IAWTV Awards Show at New Media Expo. NMX helped us produce our most successful show ever in 2014. We’re looking forward to being even more successful this coming year as they’ve co-located with NAB Show, making it the perfect place to hold our awards,” says Burns.
