Entries for the 9th IMGA come to a close today. And the organizers have announced that the awards will be announced at Game Connection this year, in San Francisco, CA, instead of at Mobile World Congress.

IMGA founder, Maarten Noyons commented, “We are moving from the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona to our own event in San Francisco, because it brings us closer to the developers and publishers and our sponsors and because we are strong enough now to be a stand-alone event”.
