    Thumbs up GPWA Wins iGB Award for Best iGaming Community

    I'm very pleased to announce that the GPWA won the inaugural Lou Fabiano Award for Best iGaming Community at the iGB Affiliate Awards ceremony this past Thursday in London.


    iGB Affiliate Awards 2011
    The Lou Fabiano Award
    for the
    Best iGaming Community

    According to iGaming Business the GPWA won the award "because the judges were particularly impressed by their strong reputation and provision of a well-moderated community where members actively contribute to important industry topics." The judges also "were impressed with how GPWA have increased forum participation and introduced useful tools to help both programmes and affiliates" and said it was "an authority community for the iGaming industry, which is well-presented and extremely useful."

    The award, named after the late Lou Fabiano (well known as the "Professor" on the GPWA and other forums), was one of 14 bestowed at the gala award ceremony held at The Brewery in London.

    I think it is important to note that the judges singled out the GPWA as a "community where members actively contribute," and so this award is truly one of which every member should be proud. We earned it together. Thank you for helping to make the GPWA the award-winning community it is today.

    Michael, you deserve a lot more credit than you probably like to accept but you are one of the good guys always looking out for the well-being of everyone.

    Very well deserved in my opinion!

    Congratulations to this achievement! Although Iím new in this community and although I still didnít manage to look through all the forums I see that this network is a great source of information and more than that an ideal meeting point for affiliates and webmasters. Such an award just confirms my first impression. Looking forward to more news!

    Talking interview with Michael re: Lou Fabiano award

    Congrats x 1000000, I am so proud of the GPWA and will always think of the team as my family. I just wanted to share the interview I did with Michael right after he received the award on behalf of GPWA...it was an emotional moment for sure!!
