The award will be announced during Mobile World Congress to be held in Barcelona, Spain on February 28, 2012.

For seventeen years, the GSMA Global Mobile Awards have showcased cutting-edge mobile products, services and initiatives around the world. The “Mobile Marketing & Advertising Agency of the Year” category is new to this year’s competition.

This news comes at an exciting time for our company, as we recently surpassed the 150,000 mobile campaign milestone and recorded a 76 percent increase in campaigns year-over-year,” commented Eric Harber, Chief Operating Officer of Hipcricket. “We’re honored to be named a finalist in such a prestigious competition where we are recognized for such accomplishments.
Mobile advertising is a rapidly growing and important part of Hipcricket’s business. Key to our offering is our post-click engagement platform. Rather than looking at mobile advertising as a one-off, an increasing number of Hipcricket clients use our mobile advertising solutions as a means to move product and build awareness, but also to re-engage the user. Several have employed our Software as a Service (SaaS) platform and advertising solutions to grow their opt-in databases. An opted-in consumer is extremely important to our customers and commands higher premiums.”

The company creates multi-channel SMS and MMS campaigns, mobile websites, QR codes, and branded apps for its clients, which include Nestle, Macy’s, Miller Coors and The American Cancer Society.

Reflecting the intensity of competition and innovation across the mobile ecosystem, we saw a record 600 entries and an exceptionally high quality field of contenders vying for this year’s Global Mobile Awards,” said Michael O’Hara, Chief Marketing Officer, GSMA. “It is a significant achievement to have made the shortlist, and our warmest congratulations go to all the nominees announced today.
