It’s hard to believe that today marks the fourth year of the Mobile Growth Awards. We launched these awards four years ago with the goal of recognizing and celebrating brands across the industry that drive innovation and growth in mobile.
Last year’s awards received over 200 applications from brands worldwide. We narrowed it down to 50 finalists, and ultimately, eight winners were chosen by our panel of judges, including representatives from Expedia, Jersey Mike’s, Domino’s Pizza, Planet Fitness, and more.
This year, we are introducing several new award categories and assembled another panel of esteemed judges from companies like AT&T, Wells Fargo, Sainsbury’s, and Swiggy.
Do you have an exceptional campaign in mind? Don’t hesitate to submit an application! Nominations will remain open until Friday, October 27, 2023. We will announce finalists in early November and the winners by November 30.
