Tablet games and applications competition the Tabby Awards opened its 2015 app-submission process to developers and publishers. The competition will determine the best iPad and Android tablet apps and games, and it is open to submissions from around the world. This year’s competition will be judged by an international panel of judges, chaired by Otto Toth, chief technology officer of The Huffington Post.
Once the submission period ends, the judging panel will select nominees, and eventually a winner, in 52 categories. During the final round of judging, the public will also be encouraged to cast its vote for separate “Users’ Choice” nods in each category. Almost 100,000 public votes were registered in last year’s Tabby Awards, the first to offer a public poll.
In a statement, Toth shared his excitement about this year’s awards:
I’m honored to chair this year’s Tabby Awards for the best tablet apps and games. All around the world, people are demanding greater mobility, and tablets are representing more and more of total media consumption. High-quality mobile apps are essential to providing good user experience, and I’m excited to review the best apps with the rest of the judging panel.
