The categories include: Best PC game / console game 2007; Best handheld console game 2007; Best mobile game 2007; Best technology 2007; Best cross media application 2007; Best developer 2007, and Best player (individual) 2007. Additionally, TIGA announced it has signed development industry specialist PR agency Peppermint P as the event's headline sponsor. TIGA CEO Fred Hasson commented, "For the 2007 awards we wanted to be able to showcase the vast array of talent that is currently residing in the UK and European development community, and some of the feedback we received from past awards has led us to introduce these new categories." He continued, "By giving our members the chance to also vote on the best technological achievements of the past 12 months, as well as embracing the new platforms and techniques in the cross media category, the TIGA awards are now even more reflective of the European development community as a whole."
