The year’s most innovative apps on stage in Barcelona during the Mobile World Congress
The Mobile Premier Awards, the biggest app awards in the mobile industry, will be showcasing some of the world’s most innovative apps on February 25 in Barcelona during the Mobile World Congress 2013. The event, which this year celebrates its VIIth edition, will bring together app makers, startups and industry experts to see the apps pitched live on stage to a jury of experts, who will then choose the best apps from 2012.
20 apps from among the winners of Appcircus events and App Challenges in 2012 will be selected by an international jury to compete as finalists at the Mobile Premier Awards. During the last year, more than 1400 apps participated.
The jury for last year’s edition of the Mobile Premier Awards brought together leading figures in the industry including Peter Vesterbacka, of Angry Birds; James Pearce, of Facebook; Anna Heim, of The Next Web, and Kenny Mathers, of Nokia. The jury for the 2013 edition will be announced shortly.
According to Carles Ferreiro, CEO of Appcircus, “apps have changed the way we relate to each other and to the world around us. In an environment where smartphones and tablets are becoming widespread, apps are increasingly providing more specific and adapted solutions to local problems. The finalists for the Mobile Premier Awards 2013 are a great example of that”. Apps are “a new industry and a new way of working, creating opportunities for businesses, institutions and developers around the world” says Carles Ferreiro.
On Monday January 28, the 20 finalists of the Mobile Premier Awards will be chosen from among all the nominated apps. This year, 22 apps are from Europe, 10 from South America 5 from the USA and 1 from North Africa.
