PGA Awards

Lance Weiler, anyone?

The Producers Guild of America wants to give a shout-out to those producing and creating digital content through a new initiative and gala awards event for later this year. Digital VIP will honor nine “Visionaries, Innovators, and Producers who have made significant contributions to the advancement of digital entertainment and storytelling during this past year.” Those are the actual category names by the way. The initiative will award three Visionaries, “who have brought forth new ideas about the creative application of technology to advance storytelling across all media”; three Innovators, “who have developed new methods or technology that enables the production of storytelling”; and three Producers, “who have created content whose reach, execution, and influence has advanced the audience experience.” The winners will be featured as part of a speaker series at Soho House in Los Angeles from November 2012 to June 2013. Membership in the Producers Guild is not required to be eligible to receive any of these awards. The Producers Guild is accepting nominations until 8pm ET on September 4.
