Awarded games will automatically have a chance to win another prize during the 14th IMGA Global edition in San Francisco.

Game submissions will only be accepted from the following countries: Brunei, Cambodia, East Timor, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Hong Kong and Taiwan.
Created in 2004, the IMGA is the longest standing mobile games award program. With its long history and unique judging process, it has recognized some of the world’s most popular titles in their early days, such as Angry Birds, Badland and Monument Valley.
