Following their success of the first two editions, the International Mobile Gaming Awards today announced they will be celebrating mobile games made by developers in the Middle East and North Africa for their third consecutive year.
This competition is being made possible by a partnership with Zain, the leading mobile network operator in the Region, and Maysalward, a leading mobile game development and publishing company. The judging session and the ceremony will be held during the Jordan Gaming Summit in November 2018 in Amman. Winners will also be nominated for the 15th IMGA edition, scheduled to take place in 2019.
“Since we have launched the IMGA in the MENA Region, we embarked on a journey of discovery which has already been very fruitful”, said IMGA CEO Maarten Noyons. The creativity and freedom of developers in the Region is refreshing and inspiring.”
Zain Jordan Chief Operating Officer Yousef Abu Mutawe commented: “We at Zain are honored to support the third IMGA MENA awards competition and we look forward to seeing the local youth participating in the call for entries, and plenty of new ideas and more complex features in the selected finalist games. Moreover, we are proud of our strategic partnership with IMGA which sheds light on the efforts of the region’s designers and developers. IMGA MENA has reserved a unique place for itself on the global mobile gaming map, as we are aiming to support also youth and help them promote their innovative ideas on local and global scales.”
