Today, I am delighted to announce the Outstanding Gamification Awards presented by Gamification Europe. I am also privileged and honoured to be asked to chair and be a judge for this year’s award. We had a lot of great feedback and learning from last year’s award, so I hope we will make this year’s award more fun, more inclusive, more transparent, fairer, and better in every imaginable way. So, let the game begin.
This year, we are going to have 7 categories. Here they are and here’s why.
Last year, we received disproportionately more submissions in the gamification project category. So, this year we decided to split this category into 3, so more amazing projects can win and be recognised. Having too many submissions in one category will obviously decrease the odds of winning for submissions to that category compared to submissions to other categories. By splitting up these popular categories, we hope to even out the odds and make the award less biased. That is, if you are a rookie who implemented an amazing gamification project, the odds of winning should not be significantly different if you submit for the Rookies Award compared to the Audience Engagement Project Award.
So, the 3 Gamification Project categories are:
Now you know how to play. Are you ready? What are you waiting for? Take out your phone (or your videography gadgets) and start documenting your gamification work.
Next time, I will tell you more about how you can win, and how we make this straightforward award more interesting and more fun. In the meantime, I’m happy to announce that submission for the Outstanding Gamification Award is now open.
Let the game begin, and I wish you all the very best of luck.
