Nominations are now open for the 2019 Edition of the Mojo Nation 100, a publication listing 100 figures working in toy and game design that have enjoyed a stellar last 12 months.
The Mojo Nation 100 2019 Edition launches at UK Toy Fair 2019, as well as having a presence at the Inventors’ Dinner, Spielwarenmesse and US Toy Fair.
‘The 100’ covers five categories:
Rising Stars – Who are the design legends of the future? Perhaps someone leading one of the industry’s many exciting start-ups, or a young star within your team? If so, nominate them in the Rising Star category. You may not know these names yet – but you soon will!
Research & Development – These nominees represent the finest talent working in R&D. It could be an inventor-relations guru responsible for unearthing some of the year’s biggest hits, or an R&D manager whose work deserves recognition. Let us know!
Design Agencies/Invention Studios– The secret weapon for many toy firms, design agencies and invention studios are the unsung heroes of our industry. This category celebrates people at design agencies with something to shout about over the last 12 months.
Freelance – From Spiel de Jahres winners to the creators behind the sector’s most innovative play concepts, here’s a chance to nominate freelance toy and game designers that have made waves this year.
Design Champions – For figures whose work supports, promotes and aids the opportunities and achievements of the toy & game design community.
If you’re working in the toy and game industry, you can nominate yourself, a colleague or anyone else that you think deserves to make 2019’s Mojo 100.
To nominate, email Billy@mojo-nation.com with the nominee’s name, job title, and your reasons for feeling that they belong on the list. Reasons must be related to achievements from within the last 12 months.
“We had lots of great feedback to the inaugural Mojo Nation 100 when it launched earlier this year, and with the 2019 edition, we’re looking forward to seeing it evolve year-on-year to reflect the most recent achievements of those working in toy and game design,” said Mojo Nation co-founder Billy Langsworthy.
“It doesn’t matter if you’re using it as a resource for finding the best design talent to work with, or as a welcome reminder of the great and often overlooked work of our industry’s creative backbone, the Mojo Nation 100 is a great way to shine a spotlight on the talent in our community. We’re looking forward to receiving your nominations.”
The nomination deadline is Friday, November 9th. There are also a limited number of sponsorship opportunities available for the Mojo Nation 100. For more information, email Adam@mojo-nation.com.
