“Beyond rebranding the Glomo Awards, we are planning many other exciting developments for the 2016 edition of the programme,” said Michael O’Hara, Chief Marketing Officer, GSMA. “Now in their 21st year, the awards will again showcase the most significant innovations in the mobile industry, from the best devices and technologies to apps and services, and we look forward to celebrating the wealth of talent and creativity the industry has to offer.”

The 2016 Glomo Awards will be presented in the following categories:

  • The Connected Life Awards
  • Best Mobile Services
  • Social and Economic Development
  • Best Mobile Apps
  • Best Mobile Handsets and Devices
  • Best Mobile Technology
  • Government Excellence Awards
  • Outstanding Achievement

The GSMA continues to evolve and enhance the awards programme to reflect the development of new mobile industry trends. This year, “The Connected Life Awards” category will have a total of eight awards addressing key vertical sectors including automotive, education, health, payments, retail and brands, and the broader Internet of Things. A new award in the category is the “Best Mobile Innovation for Travel, Leisure and Hospitality”, which will showcase how breakthroughs in mobile technology are changing the way people plan and book travel, hospitality and leisure events, as well as their onsite experiences. For a second year, the Connected Life awards will also include “The Mobile Connect Award for Authentication and Identity” to recognise products, applications and concepts that support the GSMA’s Mobile Connect initiative. In another new development for 2016, winners from each of “The Connected Life Awards” will be automatically nominated to compete for "Outstanding Innovation for the Connected Life".

The “Best Mobile Apps” category will include a new award that highlights how mobile is impacting both social media networking and lifestyle sectors such as photography, fashion, sports, books and publishing. This new award, "Best Mobile App for Social and Lifestyle", will focus on how users consume and share media-rich content through apps that provide unique functionality, flexibility and ease of use. The mobile apps category also features an award for the “Best Mobile App for Media, Film, TV or Video”, focusing on the most compelling multimedia apps that are driving audiences from fixed to mobile screens.

The award for “Best Connected Consumer Electronic Device” will become an intrinsic element of the “Best Mobile Handsets and Devices” category. Underscoring the dramatic increase in smart consumer electronic devices and gadgets, this award brings attention to the most creative and innovative electronic devices in the market today. The continued expansion and development of wearable technologies will also factor in this category, with the “Best Wearable Mobile Technology” award showcasing how dynamic and inventive technologies are fuelling the massive growth in this sector.

In addition, the “Government Excellence Awards” will recognise world-class government leadership with two awards to be presented on Monday, 22 February at the GSMA’s Ministerial Programme at Mobile World Congress. They include the “Government Leadership Award” and the “Spectrum for Mobile Broadband Award”.
