So, if you were living under a rock this weekend, you will have had no clue that Summer in the City – the biggest YouTube event in the UK – was taking place in the London. With a whole load of panels, performances and meet and greet experiences, it was definitely not something to be missed, to be honest. However, like all good things, it had to come to an end – but not before a few of our favourite YouTubers were chosen to receive a prestigious fan voted SitC Award.
That’s right, the final day of the event saw our fave YouTubers take to the main stage to collect their awards for each specific category. So, in true Unicorns fashion, we’re here to give you the low down on who-won-what at the SitC Awards 2016.
Best Breakthrough Award – Adrian Bliss
Not only did Adrian have the honour of receiving this award, he also got to pose for pictures with Dodie Clark’s mum and sister – how cute?!
Vlogger of the Year – Nathan Zed
He made his London debut just for us, thanks Nathan. You’re a true pal.
YouTube Series of the Year – Jack and Dean of All Trades
The pair toasted “here’s to the future” whilst on stage – we can’t wait to see what else they’ve got lined up.
Short Film of The Year – Bertie Gilbert’s ‘Let It Be’
Bertie’s most recent short film had the honour of receiving this award – and we even got to view a screening of it earlier that day.
Community Spirit Award – Tomska
Look at how happy he looked whilst collecting his award.
Book of the Year – The Amazing Book Is Not On Fire
Dan and Phil couldn’t collect their prestigious award in person, but they did happen to make a virtual appearance on the big screen.
‘Organised Special Mention’ for Song of the Year – Emma Blackery / Sucks To Be You
As the competition for Song of the Year was just too close this year, SitC created an extra award especially for Emma Blackery and her song Sucks To Be You.
Song of the Year – Dodie Clark / Sick of Losing Soulmates
We think Dodie was a little emotional about this one.
And saving the best ’til last, the victorious champion of the SitC Smash Bros tournament, Evan Edinger, also made his way to the stage to collect his award for winning first place – in a Yoshi hat. Here is the photographic evidence.
