You no longer need to appear in a film, TV show, or win a national competition to become famous. Today’s breakout celebrities now emerge as YouTube stars earning millions and millions of views for what is sometimes just a bite on a finger.YouTube stars now use Twitter, Facebook and the social web, to share their videos and grow to limitless fame.

The #YouTubeStar Shorty Award, created in partnership with A&E’s Breakout Kings, will be awarded to a YouTube star and breakout celebrity whose unorthodox and innovative use of Twitter, Facebook and social media has allowed them to become famous and take their careers to the next level.

The winner will be selected based upon the number of nominations they’ve received, the impact and creativity of their tweets, and the level of innovation in their use of social media as judged by the Real-Time Academy. Only real YouTube Stars are eligible for this Award. Nominations for established celebrities will be moved to more appropriate categories.
