Developers are invited to submit their best mobile games for IMGA consideration before December 31, 2019.
MARSEILLE, 2 December, 2019 – What started in 2004 in Monte Carlo (IMGA) with 85 submissions has now grown to be the largest competition for mobile games in the world, with additional region-specific events and competitions in Middle East North Africa, in China and in Southeast Asia.
All mobile game makers, from indie developers to established studios, publishers, students and researchers from all countries are invited to enter their games into this year’s competition. Unpublished games also have a chance of winning.
In past years there were unpublished games that stood out and impressed the jury. Participants have until December 31, 2019, to submit their entries.
The competition is free, and entrants may submit multiple games for consideration. Following the deadline for submissions, an online judging panel will determine the shortlisted nominees who will then be revealed as the 16th IMGA Global finalists in February.
This year’s winners will be determined by a panel of industry experts and
revealed during the annual International Mobile Gaming Awards ceremony in San Francisco, at Minna Gallery on March 17, 2020.
Last year’s awarded games include Brawl Stars (Supercell), Gladiabots (Sébastien “GFX47” Dubois) and Florence (Mountains) did not only grab the Grand Prix but also two additional Awards.
“Today, great mobile games are made all over the world. The winner of IMGA MENA, Taawoos, with Shadow of Naught is from Iran and last year’s Global winner is from Australia. Nobody can tell where the next global success will be coming from.” says Maarten Noyons, IMGA’s founder.
“The IMGA challenges small independents and large developers to compete in a fair and independent competition, where originality, quality, fun and innovation are the most important criteria.”
The IMGA Global competition is also open to AR and VR games. Eligible games must be published in 2019 or have yet-to-be published and must be downloadable in a playable version. Entrants from across the globe can submit their games for consideration on the official IMGA website.
The IMGA is the longest standing mobile games award program started in 2004. With its unique judging process, it has recognized some of the world’s most popular titles in their early days, such as Candy Crush Saga and Clash of Clans. It is the only competition that unites the industry by celebrating excellence and innovation in games.
