Thoughts On The IAWTV/Streamy Parting

By Felicia Day

... a fundamental thing got in the way once we started analyzing the situation. Namely:

a) The IAWTV is a non-profit organization by construction, the Streamy brand and awards are FOR profit by construction.

The IAWTV and Streamy Awards part company


Anchor Cove thread on announcement:


  1. The original structure of the relationship between the Streamy Awards and the IAWTV was wrong from day one. Over time it became clear that it was riddled with conflict of interest and that led to a great deal of concern in the community. That is not to say that the Streamy Awards them self were not legitimate. A lot of excellent shows received awards. However having the IAWTV Award show owned and operated by an independent for profit company was just a misguided set up. The only viable alternative to eliminate this problem was for Tubefilter to either hand over full ownership of the "Streamy Awards" to the IAWTV or for the IAWTV to host their own award show. One can only assume that a good faith attempt was made to achieve the former and when that failed the latter became inevitable.

    The good news is that the IAWTV is taking its role seriously and addressing some of these concerns. Conflict of interest is the one thing that will eat up a community and lead to its destruction. The more the IAWTV opens itself up to interacting with the community at large the better it will be able to assess all opinions in the community and not just the opinions of its membership.

    One door has closed but another much wider door has opened if the IAWTV chooses to open it. It can either become an "inner circle" or it can become a sounding board for the community at large. Which will it be? Time will tell.

  2. I just realized that literally NO ONE uses this blog any more...sorry, mm. It has run the course.

  3. Actually we still get 500-600 uniques per day.

  4. No one except Anonymous
