The iGB Affiliate organisers have today announced the 2012 award votes have been counted, with over 4000 industry affiliates and executives making their choices. Something they seem pretty chuffed about.
The shortlist includes those who received the most or equal votes in any of the following categories:
- Best Affiliate (all verticals),
- Best Affiliate Program (all verticals),
- Best New Comer (Affiliate & Program),
- Best Affiliate manager (all verticals),
- Best iGaming Affiliate Network,
- The Louis Fabiano Award for the Best iGaming Community
- and last but not least, Best Payment System for Affiliates.
Head of iGaming Business, Alex Pratt, said: “A well deserved congratulations to everyone in the shortlist. To get to this stage is an amazing result and means you’ve had to beat most of your competitors to one of these top spots. Win or lose, each company on this list should be proud to have gotten to this stage. The final decision is now in the hands of our judges, so all that is left to say is good luck to our finalists.”
Those that make it into the finals will be examined by a judging panel who will evaluate each short listed nomination in order to select the final winner. A press release by the affiliate organisers states: “Each judging panel will consist of independent experts to ensure that the integrity of the Awards is upheld. Specific experts have been invited according to the judging criteria of each Award to give their expert opinion on chosen areas.” This will be areas such as landing page professionals, SEO gurus and branding experts.
Incase you didn’t already know, this year the awards will be celebrated on the on the eve of the Affiliate Conference on 26th of January 2012 in the centre of the iGaming universe, London town. More than half of the seats have now been booked, so if you haven’t already got your ticket, you better hurry up. Like the year before, organisers expect a full house to come and celebrate the rising stars in the online gambling affiliate industry. Oh and don’t forget about the after party…
