Gamer.LK makes history as this was the first time a games & Esports related campaign received the Grand Prix award at SLIM DIGIS – the top title awarded by the Sri Lanka Institute of Marketing for digital marketing in Sri Lanka. Gamer.LK & InGame Esports were nominated for the awards alongside a record breaking 270 entries – the highest that SLIM has received to date. The Esports Premier League (EPL) was the 2nd iteration of Gamer.LK’s franchised Esports league featuring the title PUBG MOBILE. It partnered with Cricketing legends as Esports franchise ambassadors to promote the event to a Cricket-loving nation utilising a 360-degree digital marketing campaign.
Gamer.LK also won Gold for best “Cross Digital Integration” for EPL and Gold for “Best Use of Gaming, Gamification and Esports” for Dell Gaming Academy. They also secured 3 other awards aside from these major takeaways for Samsung Gaming Community and Dell Streamer Challenge.
“We built a company of gamers and let them do what they love, devoid of the creative limits that a “traditional” digital agency would face – the outcome speaks for itself. Gaming & Esports are one of the most effective ways of engaging with youth and young adults, and we bring over a decade of experience in the space to brands and publishers that want to get onboard.” said Raveen Wijayatilake, Founder & CEO of Gamer.LK and InGame Esports.
