Please welcome the VTuber Awards, the first major award show dedicated exclusively to virtual creators and their contribution to streaming culture. Hosted by Filian in collaboration with Mythic Talent, the event is intended to celebrate all VTubers worldwide — regardless of their audience size, language, or genre. The first award ceremony will be produced by WePlay Studios.
The VTubing phenomenon has been steadily expanding since the appearance of the first virtual content creators on stage. Today, VTubers constitute 1.4% of the active live gaming community on YouTube and 0.3% of the Twitch community, according to Gamesight.
Popular independent VTuber Filian, together with Mythic Talent, is excited to establish the VTuber Awards, the prime award show celebrating VTubing culture and community worldwide. The VTuber Awards are dedicated to bringing the most notable virtual creators and spotlighting their triumphs in a friendly atmosphere of collaboration and respect.

“VTubers are amazing! And often not a focus in other award shows. But this one is for us, for VTubers and VTuber fans alike! I can’t wait to see who wins!” shares Filian.
Any VTuber can become a nominee, regardless of their language of communication, audience size, genre of communication, and gender — the award is open to every creator and provides everyone with equal chances and conditions. Now the community will choose the winner in an open vote on the official website from among the creators who were nominated most often.
