From the 9th Annual Shorty Awards Viner of the Year (Last One Ever)

In four short years, Vine changed the way video content is made and how stories are told on the web. But all good things must come to an end. Though the app’s best creators are moving on to other platforms, like YouTube, Instagram, and Snapchat, they went out with a bang, posting some of their funniest vines of all time in 2016. Vine may be dead, but these loyal Viners stuck with it to the very end.

If you’re a brand looking for recognition for your use of Vine, enter the Best in Vine Shorty Award.
