The PopCrush Fan Choice Awards: Best Viner
Celebrity culture has evolved and taken on a new form throughout the years. What was once limited solely to actors, actresses and musical artists has extended to almost anyone with an iPhone. But it’s not enough to just shoot some footage of yourself and call it a day — the general public’s attention span seems to grow ever more limited as time continues to pass: The shorter your video and the better your content, the more likely you are to amass a following. That’s where Viners come.
Much like YouTube, Vine's deal is limited to video clips. But unlike YouTube, those videos have to make their point in a much shorter amount of time — Vines are only six seconds long. And while some media outlets refuse to recognize these social media stars as, well, actual stars, it would be foolish to ignore the impact they’ve had on youth culture.
We’ve put together a number of eight Viners (all of which you can check out below, along with a sample of their work) who’ve built up a strong following and have started to make their foray into different aspects of the entertainment industry in an attempt to help you decide which one deserves the title of Best Viner of 2015.
