informitv - Nielsen and comScore chart rise in online video

Americans still spend more than 33 hours a week watching television. While nine in ten households in the United States pay for a television subscription, over 5 million homes subscribe to broadband and receive only free broadcast television. A report from Nielsen says that this group tends to watch half as much television and twice as much online video as the general population. Data from comScore show that Americans are watching more online video than ever, with over a hundred million viewers a day in the United States. However, online video viewing still tends to be measured in minutes, rather than hours a day.

Submission can be made by an individual or group. A panel of educators, researchers, students, and machinima artists will choose a best in each category. Additional awards may be given based on the recommendation of panel. For last year’s winners please go to http://www.vwbpe.org/awards

Submissions Due 2/15/2012
