mobiThinking verdict: The ME Awards is in its seventh year and attracts a good selection of entrants from across the mobile entertainment business, though most of these are from the UK (where the awards take place). There are vendor categories – more so than most mobile awards – as well as the usual brand/customer success stories. The big advantage is that it is free and relatively straight forward to enter, however nominees are expected to attend the awards dinner, for which a ticket costs £295 +VAT.
It would be useful, for the winners and observers alike, if the ME Awards would publish descriptions of each entry and/or video case studies (or links to them), as it’s important to know why each won. The publisher promises there will be video interviews published with the 2013 winners, which may explain more. The videos added here were sourced by mobiThinking.
