The on-site judging session is happening at this very moment at the MOW, in Helsinki.

As you guys probably know, we got more than 1000 games submitted. During the online judging session (the first session), our judges have reduced this amount to 173 games. This online judging session consisted of 150 judges, who judged the games online.
The amount of games that need to be judged this week is a bit more than last year’s, but we believe it will go as smoothly as last year’s.
Winners will be announced on March 20 at the Minna Gallery in San Francisco. We still have a few tickets left, and you should get them and not miss this event!
In addition, we would like to thank all our sponsors: Duokogame, YOOZOO games, QIY, the city of Helsinki, Action Taken, Rovio, KING, Super Cell and Game Refinery.
Without them, we would not be able to do what we enjoy: the international mobile gaming awards!
