The purpose of the Future8 Awards is to inspire creativity and technology invention in young people, and to reward outstanding individuals with life-changing opportunities. Outfit7 is the ideal partner for The Future8 Awards Mobile App Category, having made mobile history when Talking Tom and Friends became the fastest entertainment app series to reach 300 million downloads, just 19 months after its launch. Now, with over 1.7 billion downloads and 230 million monthly active users for its flagship brand, Outfit7 is one of the world’s biggest media entertainment companies and perfectly placed to offer the winner of The Future8 Mobile App Award a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
The winner of The Future8 Mobile App Award, along with their guardian, will be flown out to Outfit7’s creative and technology hub in Ljubljana, Slovenia, where they will gain an insightful introduction into all facets of app creation. The winner 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 most beautiful attractions.
