FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Are the App Growth Awards completely independent?
Yes, 100%, of course, without a doubt.

All the judging is done online and the judges never meet, therefore regardless of whether a company sponsors the awards or anything like that this will have no bearing whatsoever on the outcome. The integrity of the awards is absolutely essential to us, they are completely independent.


Will the submission data be published or made public?
No. We will only share the entry with the judges assigned to the category. However, if there is highly confidential data you should not include this.


What is the deadline for entries?
You must submit your entry by midnight on Thursday 21st October 2021.


How much does it cost to enter?
It’s completely free to enter.


Can I enter multiple categories?
Yes as long as you have a relevant entry you can enter multiple categories.


If I win an App Growth Award what do I receive?
Kudos, prestige, a very high level of smugness, a physical reward, the right to tell everyone that you’re the best in the business and we’re also building up a prize pot so that each winner will take home an industry related prize.


Do I have to pay to attend if I’m a shortlisted finalist?
No – we want you in the room to collect your award, so all shortlisted finalists will receive free entry to the App Growth Awards Reception.


When and where will the winners be announced?
The App Growth Awards 2021 winners will be announced at App Promotion Summit Berlin on Thursday 2nd December 2021 and online.


How can my company get involved in the awards as an official partner?
We have a number of opportunities around the awards for partners. To find out more please send us an email to andrew@apppromotionsummit.com
