29 May 2012, London: MEF, the Global Community for Mobile Content and Commerce has launched its annual awards, the Meffys, now in their 9th year. New categories for 2012 include the Consumer Trust and Social Responsibility & Development Awards, reflecting key focus areas for MEF in 2012 and mobile’s ever-expanding role in consumers’ lives. Other new categories include Publisher on Mobile, Life Tools App and Brand on Mobile, recognising the breadth and scale of mobile content and commerce.
Judged by an independent and uniquely international panel of journalists, academics, analysts and VCs, the Meffys are the global benchmark for measuring success and rewarding innovation in mobile content and commerce. Last year, more than 350 industry leaders from over 30 countries gathered in London to attend the Meffys, reflecting their stature as the premier global awards for the mobile content and commerce industry.
From 29th May, companies are invited to submit entries in 13 categories until the deadline of July 9th. The 2012 winners will be announced at a gala dinner on 12th September 2012 at the prestigious Park Lane Hotel in Mayfair.
Rimma Perelmuter, MEF Executive Director commented: “Now in their 9th year, the Meffys enjoy an unrivalled heritage as the global awards for mobile content and commerce. MEF reviews the categories on an annual basis to reflect the industry’s evolution and this year, we are recognising the profound impact of mobile on key verticals and consumers around the world. The new Meffys Consumer Trust Award will also honour those companies at the forefront of creating best practice in privacy and security, key to creating a sustainable ecosystem in 2012 and beyond.”
In addition to the new awards, all nominees in each of the four innovation categories will be given the opportunity to pitch to the C-level executives at the MEF CEO Summit to be held at City Hall, on the evening preceding the Meffys. The CEOs will then vote to determine the most innovative mobile product or service and the winner of this “CEO Summit Award for Innovation” will be honoured at the Meffys Gala Awards Dinner.
