YouTubers win at Teen Choice Awards

A number of big YouTube personalities enjoyed success in the web category at this year’s Teen Choice Awards.

Many big names, including iJustine, Zoella and Toby Turner, were among the nominations for the annual award ceremony, which took place on 10th August.

YouTube star Tyler Oakley won the Choice Web Star award in the male category, with YouTuber Bethany Mota taking home the first prize in the female category. Meanwhile, British vlogger and fashion guru Zoella enjoyed victory by claiming the Web Fashion and Beauty award.

PewDiePie‘s online dominance also continues, as the Swedish video-maker won the  vote for the Web Star:Gaming gong, which shouldn’t be too surprising considering he is now close to 30 million subscribers on YouTube.

Regular award winners include Selena Gomez, One Direction and Justin Bieber.

Many recent reports have claimed that YouTuber’s are establishing themselves as bigger stars with the current internet-savvy teen demographic, overtaking more mainstream celebrities.
