Just wanted to let Atlanta know we have decided to extend our deadline for nominations for the 2015 Atlanta Mobile Awards til August 7th. We have changed things up a bit this year for the applicants & nominees.
We have added a couple new faces to our panel of judges. We welcome back Steve Bachman and Michael Kogon while adding Gabe Arronte of Make & Build and Trish Whitlock of Hypepotamus. Applicants are invited to meet the panel of judges in August so they can pitch their mobile project in person. This is a significant improvement from our first year as it will allow applicants a chance to fill in any gaps from the application while giving them face time with our VIP panel of judges.
The next addition this year comes in the form of 2 guys who are really looking forward to MC’ing the event so Josh and Kyle can step out of the limelight. Back in June, Josh and Kyle were interviewed by Matthew Queen and Max Groves of Comcastro. If you haven’t heard of Comcastro take some time to go down the rabbit hole and listen to their daily podcast. They launched in January of this year, are growing leaps and bounds and have the wildest conversations – really fun guys who promise to make the event a ton of fun. They also aim to sit with the panel of judges for the applicant pitches so they can start to cover more of our local talent on their show.
We also welcome some new sponsors, more on that later so keep in touch and SAVE THE DATE – September 3rd, 2015 @ The Loft above Center Stage.
