Angelica ‘GeGe’ Bagot (@TribalUnicorn), the high energy creative online entrepreneur is the newly appointed Creative Director

The Ceremony and behind the scenes is set to be streamed live on youtube and Facebook Live and highlights of the event will be broadcast on a Sky channel at a later date.

The Awards as always highlights the newborn media maker who can wake up, write, cast, crew, and fund a project online, record and edit with a mobile device, launch a YouTube channel to distribute the content, design a blog to publicise their work and find an audience via any one of a number of social networks such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Periscope and more.

With the constant debate about the lack of inclusion across mainstream media channels, the Screen Nation Digital is Media Awards is a great way to provide emerging voices with a platform that recognises and rewards the wealth of talent succeeding in the digital arena.

The Digital is Media Awards celebrates excellence by black media professionals and the public working to produce innovative, interactive video content, apps, social media campaigns, games and web channels. The awards also champion outstanding web shows from channels that achieve scale, volume and noise, no matter what their budgets.

Full details of the 2017 categories and nominations to be voted for by both the public and nominees alike including Favourite Web Series, Short Film, Online Comedian, Web Series and Fav Podcast are announced Monday 18th Dec across social media. Screen Nation judges also bestow up to four Special Achievement Awards recognising outstanding efforts and innovation in the digital landscape.
