QTCinderella has officially confirmed the return of her highly-lauded event, The Streamer Awards — and content creators are already jumping for joy.

Last year, popular Twitch streamer QTCinderella organized the first-ever independent streamer awards show that celebrated the best and brightest of online broadcasters from Twitch to YouTube and beyond.

The Awards went off without a hitch and received an outpouring of praise and support from other streamers and their fans, with many viewers hoping the event would become a staple in coming years.

It seems as though that wish has come to pass, as QT has just revealed that the Awards are back on for 2023 in a Twitter video on January 19.
