IMGA opens for entries

Prizes totalling USD 40,000 on offer

The organisers of the International Mobile Gaming Awards have announced that entries are now being accepted for the 2007 competition.

Now in its fourth year, the IMGA is designed to recognised and reward mobile game developers for innovation. Last year, 400 developers from 42 countries took part.

"In 2006 many exciting new connected games and multiplatform games entered the competition. We saw games that were using all the features of mobile phones including microphone, camera, motion sensors and connectivity. We reviewed location based games and 3D games with stunning high quality graphics, and simple, addictive 2D games developed with Flash," said IMGA managing director Maarten Noyons.

"This year we are expecting to see innovations and improvements in all these areas. In October we will bring you the 25 nominated games that represent the cutting edge of mobile entertainment worldwide."

Entrants have until 6pm CET on September 24 to submit their initial proposals. A shortlist will be announced by the end of the following month, and successful entrants will then have until January 28 to produce a demo version of their concept for judging.

The winners will be announced at the 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona on February 13.
