Published by Ibnu Mohamed @ 19/10/2015

Prodigee Media Group and WebTVAsia are set to organise the first WebTVAsia Awards 2015, dubbed as the Asia’s first ever regional level YouTube awards on 23rd October 2015 at Sunway Pyramid Convention Centre.

The award show will bring together the best and most popular YouTubers as well as top content creators and influencers from 12 Asian nations including China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam – to vie for more than 30 awards including the best online content, and to celebrate the explosive growth of Asia’s top online creators for their achievements.

Prodigee Media Group founder and Chief Executive Officer, Fred Chong said it is a high time for the region to have its own digital awards to recognize the growing industry in this part of the world. With the theme of ‘Celebrate Asia,’ he hopes the award will serve as a catalyst to promote Asian content beyond their own shores and expand throughout the region and the world.

“Apart from the awards to recognise the content creators who have all made it big, whether locally, regionally or even internationally – there will also be a forum for Asian and global Multi-Channel Networks (MCNs) and creators to network, as well as to share on how they can elevate their content and approach as well as to discover trends and share relevant know-how, he added.”

Kicking off the event that coincides with Prodigee’s 10th anniversary, will be the WebTVAsia Creators Forum 2015 where top MCNs and filmmakers will gather in a unique sharing session with YouTubers to network and share their knowledge.

The forum will also be Asia’s first industry conference exclusively held by and for online video creators from diverse Asian countries. Apart from the knowledge sharing, the forum will witness several long term strategic partnership deals between key industry players from China, Korea, France, USA, Malaysia, Singapore and Vietnam.

The WebTVAsia Creators Forum 2015 is supported by the Malaysian government through Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) in its continued initiative to position Malaysia as the hub for Asian Digital Content Development.
