Find out who has been shortlisted for this year's hallowed event.

The annual ME Awards ceremony returns for 2013 on Thursday, November 14th at the Royal Garden Hotel in London, which will mark the eighth anniversary of the grand event.

Planning and operations are well underway, with hundreds of awards submissions pouring in last Friday to meet the entry deadline.

Last year marked our biggest night to date, as we grew from the traditional 18 awards up to 23. The move was made to reflect the continually expanding nature of the mobile content industry, and resulted in attendance of more than 300 guests from over 100 companies.

This year we're back with 23 awards, some new and some revamped, including: Best Mobile Game, Best Mobile Advertising Campaign, Best Payments Service Provider, Best Market Research Company, and more.

Winners will be voted for by several hundred impartial judges from the ME contacts book.

A single place at the awards costs £295 +VAT and tables of ten are priced at £2,750 +VAT.

If you want to be in the room on the night, just in case it is you picking up that all-important gong, contact Katy Phillips at katy.phillips@intentmedia.co.uk or on +44 (0)1992 535647 to book your tickets.

If you’re interested in sponsoring the awards then please speak to Katy for more details.
