Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) December 18, 2006
Starting with the launch of Lulu.TV, then the big acquisition of You Tube, to LonelyGirl15 becoming the biggest vlogger and then the biggest fraud - to say the least 2006 has been a big year for internet video sites.
LuluTV launched June 2006 with open arms to creators who were ready to stay in control their digital content. As a 'viral video co-op', shareholders are paid based on the percentage of traffic they produce (10% of traffic on LuluTV = 10% of the total money).
All of the content on LuluTV is original work and the best work is selected, so that the viewer doesn't have to spend their time sorting through less than great material.
To cap off the year in style, LuluTV has compiled its "best of" list from the content on the site. All of the winners are semi-professional or independent filmmakers. The list was compiled by the community and then the winners selected by LuluTV editors. This top 13 list (because 13 is a great number, contrary to popular belief), includes categories like, "Best Mashup" which is a mix of Desperate Housewives and beloved Disney characters, to "Best Male and Female Vloggers".
The winner of the "Best Overall" category was Pepsigirl: Superburp! This was minted as "a nexus of three very popular viral video memes: soda & mentos, cute girls, and things that go kablooie," says Jeremy Hogan, one of the editors behind the scenes of LuluTV. Additionally, this video helped make its creator, David Broad, the top moneymaker of 2006.
