A word from our sponsors:
The NYTVF was founded in 2005 as the industry's first recognized independent television festival, providing a platform to elevate the work of artists creating for the small screen. Held annually each fall in New York City, the birthplace of modern television, the Festival unites artists, executives, industry figures, and fans together in one forum to celebrate the medium and to help shape its future. NYTVF Digital Day, sponsored by MSN, is an annual celebration of the best in interactive content and web television.
Web 2.0 Expo NYC, a conference and expo bringing together the best and brightest in the Web 2.0 universe will be returning November 16-19th at the Javits Center. We will be giving away two free passes to the expo at the next Ignite!
