SuperAwesome has confirmed that Outfit7 has partnered with The Future8 Awards to exclusively sponsor its Mobile App category.
Launched in partnership with The Guardian, The Future8 Awards is aiming to find the top seven to 17 year old digital creators in the UK and Ireland. Each prize is a life-changing opportunity provided by the category sponsor.
Iza Login, deputy CEO and co-founder of Outfit7, will join the line-up of Future8 judges. This also includes Shannon Cullen, publisher at Puffin, Penguin Random House UK; Jo Scalpello, head of partnerships at Blinkbox; and Eric Huang, head of development at Made in Me.
The winner of the Mobile App award, along with their guardian, will be flown out to Outfit7’s creative and technology hub in Ljubljana, Slovenia. They will experience first hand all the different stages of app development from initial insight, concepts and artwork to testing and marketing. Outfit7 will also arrange for the winner to visit some of the country’s attractions.
"We’re delighted to be taking part in the Future8 Awards, helping to motivate and encourage young talent," said Outfit7’s Login. "Here at Outfit7 we are committed to developing imaginative and innovative products, from idea to reality, so we are excited about the opportunity to help inspire the next generation of app developers."
Dylan Collins, CEO of SuperAwesome, added: "The Talking Tom and Friends franchise is a global phenomenon and it’s hugely popular amongst our audience of seven to 17 year olds. Access to Outfit7’s expertise and knowledge of this sector is an exceptional opportunity for any young app developer and we look forward to working together to find a creative star."
