The Ceremony will be streamed live on Google+ Hangout, uniquely the only awards show that does this in the world. Highlights of the event will be broadcast on ABN TV (Sky 235) at a later date. Emerging TV producer Delia C. Williams (Graham Norton Show etc) is the Event Director with George UK Washington as Design Partner, Scene TV and AfricaX5 returning as exclusive Online Media Partner and Media Production Partner respectively .

The Awards as always highlights the new born 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 diversity across mainstream media channels in the UK and across the world, the Screen Nation Digital-iS Awards is a great way to give new voices a platform and recognise the wealth of talent succeeding in the digital arena.The Digital iS Media Awards celebrates excellence by black British professionals and the public working to produce innovative, interactive video content, apps, social media campaigns, games and web channels.
