iGB Affiliate Awards Announce Category Shortlists

Top ten nominees for each of the fourteen awards revealed

20 December 2010, London, UK: iGB Affiliate Events are proud to announce the top ten shortlists for each of the fourteen award categories ahead of the iGB Affiliate Awards, which are due to be held on Thursday 27th January at The Brewery. The full shortlists are now available to view here http://www.igbaffiliateawards.com/content/shortlists-announced and have been compiled through a comprehensive process of both voting and judging.

“We are proud of the changes we’ve made to the iGB Affiliate Awards. I really think these have made the whole decision making process more transparent and each award accountable to the iGaming Industry”, stated Alex Pratt, Head of iGaming Business. “Every company and individual on these shortlists should be proud to have beaten hundreds of their competitors to the top ten. As we reduced the number of awards from 23 last year, to 14 this year, the 2011 awards are more competitive than ever, so well done to each of them.”

The iGB Affiliate Awards is the UK’s premier recognition platform for businesses of all sizes in the online gaming affiliate industry. An opportunity to differentiate your business and stand out from competitors, this black tie affair will grant the winners much deserved recognition from the online gambling industry for their innovation, marketing and success. Some of the names that have been successful in reaching the shortlists will be familiar to past attendees, for example last year’s winner of the Best Poker Affiliate, PokerStrategy.com are set against twice award-winning RakeTheRake.com. In the new category ‘The Lou Fabiano Award for the Best iGaming Community’; competition will run high, with both CasinoAffiliatePrograms and GPWA nominated, but who will be crowned the winner on the night?
