Gorillaz games go up for a gong

We’re no stranger to awards (and I mean that in a humble way…) but we still get a tingle of excitement and anticipation when our work goes up for a gong.

Last week, our “Escape to Plastic Beach” game app for Gorillaz with EMI Music was nominated in the 3rd annual BT Digital Music Awards. As well as celebrating the online presence of artists and music, these awards take in music websites, blogs, events, apps and online innovation and gadgets. Which just goes to show how much demand there is from fans to get closer to their fave bands and sounds.

Without sounding like a broken record (pardon the pun), this is no surprise to us. We know people don’t just want to watch or listen to brands they like; they want to experience and interact with them. And we’re very happy to help!

What I like about the BT Digital Music Awards awards is that they’re interactive too. Winners are selected by online vote which means you can have your say right now! Click here to make your voice heard and don’t be confused by two Gorillaz entries on the shortlist for Best Music App. “Plastic Beach” is an earlier online game and “Escape to Plastic Beach” is the latest iPhone/iPod/iPad app. It’s your choice – but please vote for the “Escape to Plastic Beach” app because it’s a glorious Gorillaz experience, made with love by Matmi and it’s really, really good 🙂 .

Voting closes on 23rd Sept and the more votes you cast, the better your chances of winning tickets to the televised award ceremony at The Roundhouse in London. C’mon! You know you want to….

Hope to see you there – our fate is in your hands 🙂 , Jeff.
