Mobile Entertainment Awards – closing date for entries 16 August

I think this must be the busiest mobile year ever because no sooner do we have the Vodafone Mobile Click Competition and also the DCKTN / UKTI competition to win places to Mobile World Congress but we also have The EMMAs (for mobile marketing excellence - nominal £100 entry fee) and the Mobile Entertainment Awards for doing great stuff in mobile content (free to enter).

Since Mobile Entertainment Magazine is a friend of the MoMoLo family, we’re very happy to fill you in on the Mobile Entertainment Awards, and even better, they’re free to enter. And since I know a lot of you are involved in mobile content and mobile media, this could be a good one for you. But get your skates on, closing date for entries is 16 August which isn’t far away at all.

So what’s it all about then?

The ME Awards evening rewards companies doing outstanding things in the mobile content space. Once again, the venue will be the Royal Garden Hotel in London. The big night takes place on Thursday, November 18th. I went last year, and it was a great night.

You now have until Monday August 16th to enter. It's a free and very simple process. No complex terms and conditions. No need to be a start-up or a company of a specific size. As long as you’re in the mobile content world, then there’s probably a category for you. Just send a short pitch document (no more than 500 words), containing information about your successes and innovations – and stating the category you wish to enter – to ME-awards@intentmedia.co.uk.
