Four Weeks Left to Enter Our Awards

There are just over four weeks left until the entry deadline for the 2012 Effective Mobile Marketing Awards, sponsored by OpenMarket and Propel.

10 August is the red letter day for your diary, if you want to be involved in one of the most important events in the mobile marketing calendar.

As always, there’s no entry fee, and weve added three new categories this year, bringing the total to 20. The full list is as follows:

  • Most Effective Mobile Application – b2c
  • Most Effective Mobile Application – b2b

The Awards Ceremony takes place on 29 November at the London Film Museum. Tickets will be available for the Ceremony after the shortlist has been announced in September. 

Winners at last year’s ceremony included British Airways, New Look, Debenhams, Pepsi and Sainsbury’s, and we welcome entries from across the globe – more than 30 countries were represented in last year’s Awards. Multiple entries from the same company or brand are welcome, and if you feel a campaign or piece of work belongs in more than one category, all you have to do is make that clear on the entry form.

Once again, we have recruited the best and brightest brains in the business to judge the awards, including the IABs Jon Mew; Russell Buckley, partner at Ballpark Ventures; mobile marketing specialist Helen Keegan; Stuart Miles, founder and editor of Pocket Lint; mobiThinking editor Andy Favell; and the Guardian’s go-to man for mobile, Stuart Dredge. Mobile Marketing editor David Murphy will chair the judging panel.

We are also inviting sponsors to support the Awards. As a sponsor, you will benefit from extensive publicity in the run up to the event through our own eBlasts and articles on the web and in our print and iPad editions, plus those written by our media partners, including the IAB and the IMRG. You will also receive premium branding during the Awards Ceremony. To get involved as a sponsor, please contact John Owen via email, or phone: +44 (0) 20 7183 2920.

Remember, the entry deadline is 10 August, so head for and start working on your entry today.
