The VTuber Awards, scheduled to commence in December 2023, aims to be an inclusive award show open to anyone involved in VTuber culture or active as a VTuber themselves. This event promises to provide an opportunity for participation and recognition within the vibrant VTuber community, fostering a sense of inclusivity and celebration.

The VTuber Awards are being hosted by Filian, a well-known independent VTuber, in collaboration with Mythic Talent. Mythic Talent is a talent management company founded by OTK members Asmongold and TipsOut.
In a discussion with Dexetro, Filian addresses the potential of the upcoming show. “The goal is to cover a wide scope of VTubers,” she told. “There will be categories for small creators and large creators, like Rising Star versus VTuber of the Year-esque awards.

“We’re also considering how best to organize the awards for English, Japanese, and other languages, as well as corporate versus independent. Since it’s the first time we’re doing the awards, the goal is to make it a celebration of VTubers and how it all got started, talking about the history of VTubers including those who came before me because they paved the way and gave me the chance to do this,” she continued.
Given that VTubing has become increasingly popular over the past several years and may now have reached a turning point, it’s imperative to spotlight the creative virtual producers’ efforts. Since its inception as a talent agency, Mythic has heavily invested in VTubers, snatching up a number of prominent independent stars in the English-speaking market. At the beginning of May, Filian herself joined the organization.
“We knew Filian had big goals and ideas she wanted to achieve,” said Mythic Talent CEO William Lucas. “Filian and Mythic share the same goal of shining a spotlight on VTubers and helping the VTuber sphere as a whole grow. Award shows have always been popular and they recognize talented figures for their achievements and successes in interesting ways. They spark competition in a way as well which keeps the industry growing and innovative.”
If the past few years have been the VTubing industry’s “boom years,” with tremendous expansion, the booking of significant award events, like Filian’s VTuber Awards, demonstrates an integration of the market. This collaboration brings together the expertise and influence of Filian and the experience of Mythic Talent, promising to create a remarkable event for the VTuber community.
