Members of the 2017 'Gamification Guru Scorecard'

​During the first edition of ​The Gamification Awards ​(back when they were still a part of ​Gamification Europe​) the judges were comprised of the top members of the 'Gamification Guru Scorecard'. ​



Being a judge for The Gamification Awards was both a pleasure and a privilege; far too often we hear the theory and what people aren't doing right.

The Awards, however, demonstrate just how diverse gamification is; showcasing many manifestations and applications that have a real world global impact.

Successful usage of gamification for measurable, quantifiable outcomes is alive and well, and being used for genuine, commercial benefit.

Results showed the why, not just the how, and judging the awards was a great reaffirmation of the industry.
