Voting open for Zeebys' "People's choice" awards

Gamezebo and the Casual Games Association have opened public voting for the second annual Zeebys Award Show

Gamezebo and the Casual Games Association has announced that voting is now open for the Zeebys' People's Choice Awards.

Nominations for the People's Choice Awards have been chosen by members of the Casual Games Association and are voted on by the public. The Craft Awards, rewarding excellence in game design itself, are voted upon by peers in the Casual Games Association.

The winners will be revealed at the second annual Zeebys Award Show on July 24 at the Casual Connect Conference in Seattle. The show will be taped by Lifetime Networks and broadcast on its Web site.

"This year's Zeebys will be bigger and better than last year's to celebrate the ascent of casual games into mainstream entertainment," says Joel Brodie, CEO of Gamezebo and founder of the Zeebys.

"We are now a USD 2.25 billion dollar a-year industry, and compete with the likes of TV, music and movies. We've arrived."

The theme of this year's Zeebys is "Casual Games Giving Back", with 100 per cent of all ticket sales benefiting the Starlight Starbright Children's Foundation nonprofit charity dedicated to helping seriously ill children and their families.
