Ireland’s first mobile app awards announced
Digital Times magazine and Alchemy Event Management have announced the launch of Ireland’s first dedicated awards ceremony for mobile application development and design.
Titled 'The Appys', the awards aim to celebrate the innovation and creativity of the app development industry and reward the best, the most useful and the most creative apps and their developers.
Entry to the awards is open to app developers, app development companies, digital advertising agencies, traditional agencies, private companies, the public sector agencies and brands.
If you have developed, or invested in the development of an app, you are invited to enter.
“The app development industry is rising and rising fast,” says Stephen Conmy, editor of Digital Times.
“In the fragmented digital information age the app sector has already established itself as a very useful, influential, innovative and lucrative media sector.
"Consumers have voted with their feet on the app and voted in droves. This year €6bn will be spent on apps worldwide, with this figure rising to an estimated €18bn by 2012."
"A staggering 4 Billion Apps have been downloaded so far in 2010 alone and when the iPad and all the other tablet computers are hit the market, app development will become one of the most important areas of content creation in media and publishing", he added.
Entry forms and publicity for the awards will be distributed in the coming weeks and the winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on October 28.
