“This year’s Stevie Award winners in the IBAs are the most distinguished group of winners we’ve had yet,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “We raised the minimum average score from the judges required to qualify as a Stevie winner, so 2018 winners should be especially proud of their achievements. We look forward to presenting their Stevies to them in London on October 20 2018, and to telling their stories over the coming year through Stevie Awards media.”
Graham Shapiro commented, “It is incredible to receive a Gold Stevie Award for Internet and New Media Entrepreneur of the Year.
Thank you to the Stevie Awards and the judges for their nominations.

I am immensely grateful to receive this award especially when you consider the incredible achievements of the other finalists.”
