CES 2012: Best of Web TV



The web television industry was out in full force at the Consumer Electronics Show as the winners of the Inaugural International Academy of Web Television (IAWTV) Awards were announced.

The winners for the IAWTV Awards were chosen by majority vote of the active voting membership of the IAWTV from nominees who topped more than 350 officially submitted web series. The winners were presented with awards celebrating their outstanding achievements across 32 different categories.

“The inaugural IAWTV Awards winners represent the best of what is possible in Web television,‚ said Paul Kontonis, Chairman of the Board of Directors for IAWTV, and Vice President/Group Director of Brand Content at Digitas. “”The content is premium, in all genres, produced independently and by major studios and attractive to both audiences and advertisers.””
