The Meffys are a unique platform which recognise outstanding achievements from across the mobile entertainment value chain around the globe. The entries will be judged by leading journalists, analysts and VCs.
“From the heightened participation of handset manufacturers and the proliferation of widgets and app stores, to the emergence of multi-platform services and the meteoric rise of mobile social networking, over the last year the industry has risen to the challenge of revamping its business models and setting a new standard for mobile entertainment. The Meffys present an ideal idea opportunity for the visionaries and leaders driving this remarkable evolution to showcase successes and compete to be recognised as the industry’s best.”
