Gamification Gurus Power 100

Published by: Toby Beresford

November 2017 - Voting now open

This month it's all about the annual awards. They will be presented at Gamification Europe on November 27th.

To do so we need you, the gamification gurus to use your professional opinion to vote.

There are six categories: guru, community, project, agency, software and research.

Visit www.gamificationofwork.com/awards/ to see your ballot paper and the list of submitted entries.

Your vote is weighted according to your November Guru Score. i.e. a Guru Score of 25 gives your preference a weight of 25 votes.

Your actual vote will remain secret, but I will be publishing the list of gurus who have case their votes on the awards site. This will allow teams to chase gurus who have yet to cast their votes. ;) 

Please do take the time to vote for your fellow gurus and the projects of our global gamification community. 

Personally I'm really excited to see the wave of energy the awards has generated and as you can see there are some really good examples of gamification in action submitted. By voting you help ensure we give the awards to the right people and teams - you help us all showcase the best of gamification to the rest of the world!

Thank you!

Toby Beresford

ps. I'm of course very open to discussions on the mechanics of how these awards should be run. I know you guys are the gamification gurus after all! I'll take any learnings from this year and apply them to next year's awards.

pps. If you wish to exercise your right to not vote please submit a blank ballot paper with your name.
