Joivan Wade, Percelle ‘Percy’ Ascott and Dee Kaate (aka Mandem On The Wall aka JPD)!
To us it’s a no brainer. It was just over a year ago that they attended as simple aspirators that were proving popular on the worldwide web. Fast forward to 2016, and now they are on BBC Three with their show “JPD” and star in their first comedy movie “The Weekend”, which is to be released in the same month.
So, this December is going to be hot for them, and we couldn’t be praiseworthy for all of their hardwork and successes.
Full details of the 2016 categories and nominations to be voted for by both the public and nominees alike including Favourite Web Series, Short Film, Online Presenter, Web Series and Grime Music Promo are announced on Friday 11th November across social media. Screen Nation judges also bestow up to four Special Achievement Awards recognising outstanding efforts and innovation in the digital landscape.
Last year’s winners included some of Europe’s leading digital creative talents, such as Olajide Olatunji aka JJ or KSI, the multi-millionaire FIFA game vlogger & rapper; the sensational fashion & beauty lifestyle vlogger Shirley B. Eniang and famed music promo creative Director X, as well as international brands such as Luti Media, and emerging content creators Brothers with No Game.
