Organizers of the iGB Affiliate Awards have announced the category shortlists of nominees for the 2011 ceremony. These shortlists include the top ten nominees for each of the awards, culled down from the previously much larger lists of nominations.
These lists have been compiled “through a comprehensive process of both voting and judging,” iGaming Business stated in a news release.
“We are proud of the changes we’ve made to the iGB Affiliate Awards,” added Alex Pratt, Head of iGaming Business. “I really think these have made the whole decision making process more transparent and each award accountable to the iGaming Industry.
“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.”
