IMVU was among eight winners in five categories and winners received their awards in person at the Virtual Worlds Conference and Expo on September 3, 2008 at the Los Angeles, California convention center.

IMVU was informed that the decision to recognize the company was a result of its truly impressive successes in building not only a huge audience in a tough demographic, but also for its ability to build a strong developer community. Creating content in both 2D and 3D is recognized as a challenging task and the judges felt that the IMVU community showed tremendous commitment and talent.

“We are hugely honored by the Virtual Worlds award,” said Cary Rosenzweig, CEO of IMVU. “This award is a reflection of the amazingly creative IMVU community of developers who add 4,000 new digital items each day to the IMVU catalog, the world’s largest.”

2008 is the first year for the Virtual Worlds Innovation Awards. Categories included virtual worlds for: enterprise, consumer, youth, pioneer and overall innovation. The prestigious list of judges included:

• Joey Seiler, Editor, Virtual Worlds News and awards chairman
• Christian Renaud, CEO, Technology Intelligence Group
• Erica Driver, Co-Founder and Principal, ThinkBalm
• Nic Mitham, Managing Director, K Zero
• Steve Prentice, VP and Fellow, Gartner
• Robert Bloomfield, Founder and Host, Metanomics

“Winners of the Virtual Worlds Innovation Award should be very proud of their accomplishments,” said Joey Seiler, editor for Virtual Worlds News and awards chairman. “The innovation in the virtual worlds industry over the last year represents growth by leaps and bounds and we felt it was time to recognize some of the stars of this exciting space. This year’s winners are incredibly deserving as they were up against a very long list of innovators.”
