    Cool GPWA wins iGB Best iGaming Community Award for third straight year!

    I'm very pleased to announce that the GPWA is the three-time winner of the Lou Fabiano Award for Best iGaming Community. We were presented with the 2013 award at the iGB Affiliate Awards ceremony this past Friday in London, last year in 2012, and also at the inaugural ceremony for the award two years ago in 2011.


    iGB Affiliate Awards 2013
    The Lou Fabiano Award for
    Best iGaming Community
    GPWA

    As stated at the ceremony "GPWA continues to be informative and provide and offer useful information to new and experienced affiliates. Their forums are extremely busy and they mediate controversial discussions professionally. They are the gold standard in iGaming community discussions and have the highest reputation among the iGaming affiliates communities and programs making them for a [third] year in a row the best iGaming community in the industry. "

    I think it is important to note that the judges singled out the GPWA forums as being "extremely busy," and so this award is truly one of which every member should be proud because it is our members that make the community as active and vibrant as it is. We earned it together. Thank you for helping to make the GPWA the award-winning community it is today.

    I'd like to echo Michael's sentiment here. I find myself constantly inspired by GPWA members.

    Over the years I've seen you grow together. In the past year, some of you have moved from part time work to being able to make your sites your full time income, others of you have adjusted your business strategy in cleaver and creative ways as industry changes present new challenges, and most of you work countless, unseen hours perfecting your sites and expanding your content to keep delivering the best value for both players and the affiliate programs that you partner with. And on top of your entrepreneurial spirit and hard work, you do it all with an eye toward giving back to the community and the industry.

    There is something special to that, something unique and precious about an industry that comes together not simply as separate businesses, but as companions and colleagues. To repeat a comment I wrote some time ago: GPWA members choose to come together and turn competitors into partners, newcomers into colleagues, and strangers into friends.

    It's as true now as it was then - perhaps even more so. And for the daily inspiration that you provide to me and to one another, I thank you. The award truly belongs to you.
    I have left the industry and earned a law degree at Indiana University Bloomington, Maurer School of Law. Here are ways to stay in touch with me:

    They may have to change the name to "The GPWA Award for Best iGaming Community" and eliminate you guys from the running if you keep winning like this.

    Congratulations to everyone who makes a contribution, from Michael, Steven and the team that make it all work; to the Sponsor Programs who provide input and assistance; and to the Affiliate Webmasters who without them there wouldn't be a community at all.

    Congrats to all that put the time and effort into making the GPWA a great place to be!
