With so many changes coming to this year’s Summer In The City, it’s hard to keep track of what’s going on on at the biggest YouTube event in the UK. But just announced is an exciting new addition to 2016’s event: the SitC Awards.
In previous years at SitC, YouTubers have been awarded their Gold and Silver Play Buttons from YouTube, live onstage – But for the first time in its eight years of running, SitC has launched its own awards program, based on nominations from fans and the general public.
“Here at SitC we are proud to celebrate the fantastic creators that inhabit the online world, and the incredible work they create,”explains the website. “On Sunday 14th August, on the SitC main stage, we will be awarding the best of the best as we hand out awards in six categories.”
Attendees, fans, YouTubers or just or anyone with internet access can register and submit nominations for the SitC Awards on the official website. The categories available for submitting nominations are:
Vlogger of the Year

Summer In The City will take place at London ExCeL Centre between August 12th-14th, with the SitC Awards taking place on the Sunday of the event. You can nominate, buy tickets and find out more info on the website.
