ECNY Awards
Awarded for Best comedy works of previous year
Country United States
First awarded 2003

The ECNY Awards (formerly the Emerging Comics of New York Awards) were created by Derrick Gordon to honor rising stars in the New York Comedy world in various genres, including sketch, stand up, improv, musical comedy acts, and video. The awards ran from 2003 to 2011, with the exception of a hiatus in 2006. Nominees are selected by New York audiences and an Industry Committee, and the general public votes online to determine the winners, who are announced at an awards show gala each year.

After a one-year hiatus in 2006, the awards were produced by a new production team consisting of Alex Goldberg, Jon Friedman, Carol Hartsell, Nate Sloan, and Alex Zalben. In 2010, Alex Goldberg left the team and Kambri Crews was added as an Executive Producer.
