Mythic Talent and WePlay Studios join forces to create a one-of-a-kind celebration of the VTubing community and its contribution to global streaming culture.
Gaming content production company WePlay Studios becomes the official partner of the VTuber Awards, the first major industry-wide award show dedicated exclusively to virtual creators. The company contributes to the development of the event format and its technical implementation, including the creation of the Awards’ brand identity, computer graphics, augmented reality elements for broadcast, the content plan realization, creation of side-content about the nominees, the general history of VTubing, and its community.
The VTuber Awards will be held on December 16, 2023, from the WePlay Esports Arena Los Angeles, California, a high-security arena for creating content of any kind and difficulty. At the time of the cooperation announcement, the team was already preparing the extended site for the broadcast, completing the final preparations of the stage design, and creating a virtual set with the elements of augmented and extended reality exclusively for the Awards. The WePlay Studios team will also moderate and conduct the live stream so that viewers enjoy the broadcast of the highest quality and gain the best viewer experience from the first seconds of the expo.
The WePlay team is known among the gaming and esports community for its first-class event production. Since 2022, WePlay Studios has been a strategic partner of One True King, the largest influencer network in the United States. As part of the cooperation, WePlay was responsible for the production of such shows as the OTK Games Expo 2022–2023, Wheel of Chaos, and Esfand’s Draft Night Extravaganza. In 2021, WePlay became the short-list nominee for the Esports Awards as the Creative Team of the Year.
“While preparing the event, we strive not only to spotlight the best virtual creators but also to reveal and show the world of VTubing, the uniqueness and brightness of this phenomenon. We are grateful for the trust in us and can guarantee that it will be justified.
VTubing is closely intertwined with augmented and virtual reality technologies, so working on the Awards, we want to highlight this intersection by implementing the latest technologies into broadcasting. There will be many surprises, such as a virtual stage, appearances by nominees during the live broadcast, exclusive interviews, and much more. And this is all to ensure that the audience receives maximum positive emotions from viewing. The VTuber Awards will become a worthy competitor to leading gaming awards,” comments Maksym Bilonogov, chief visionary officer and general producer at WePlay Studios.
“We're really proud to help bring such a large-scale award show to such a talented and deserving group of creators. Mythic strives to support our talent in all of their endeavors, no matter how ambitious, and we can't think of more fitting partners to work with on bringing this show to life than Filian and WePlay Studios,” shares William Lucas, Mythic Talent CEO.
The VTuber Awards is the first major awards show dedicated to celebrating the VTubing community, organized by Filian and Mythic Talent. To learn more about the event, follow the VTuber Awards social media: X (formerly known as Twitter), TikTok, and Instagram.
