​We'd love to hear from you. Have an idea for an award? Is there a question which isn't answered in our FAQ? Let us know.​

From healthcare and well-being, to climate breakdown and everything in between - gamification is poised to be one of the most powerful emerging tools of the 21ˢᵗ century and we want to recognise that. 

With The Gamification Awards we aim to push the boundaries of what is possible for gamification and to recognise those that question the standards which we set for ourselves as gamification practitioners.
