Global Messaging Awards 2010

Global Messaging Awards 2010

by Ben Smith on 10th May 2010

A quick note to our readers who also work in the mobile industry. We know you mostly hang round here to watch us squabble and laugh at our gadget lust, but this might be of interest to you: the Global Messaging Awards 2010 are fast approaching and you’ve got until the end of May to get your nominations in.

With all the app-related excitement of-late we often forget the rich (actual richness and the ‘full of variety’ kind) of services available from SMS. It is a universal and still hugely popular platform: 11million messages every hour a helpful press-release tells me. And that’s a lot.

So, if you’re involved in an SMS-based service – for consumer or business – then get nominating yourselves.  Alternatively, if there’s a service you use and love let them know they need to get their hats in the ring. There are 10 categories to enter:

  • Messaging Infrastructure or Platform
  • Messaging Application or Service: Public Sector
  • Messaging Application: Business
  • Messaging Application: Consumer
  • Innovation in Messaging
  • Best new Marketing Campaign Using Messaging
  • Mobile Financial Services Solution
  • Messaging Application or Service: Social Use
  • Effective Use of Mobile Ticketing
  • Telematics/Telemetry/M2M Messaging

The final closing date for entries is 31st May 2010 and you can find out more at the awards website. The winners will be announced at a Gala Dinner on the 22nd June during the Global Messaging Congress.
