The pinball industry has been experiencing a “renaissance period” from an influx of new games, new companies, innovations, new talent, part accessibility and even ingenious after-market modifications. What an absolutely exciting time to be in the pinball hobby!
The internet has helped fan this renaissance spark into a flame! From Pinside, to various podcasts, to social media, to Pinball News & Pinball Magazine the community has multiple platforms to interact and exchange thoughts to promote the hobby we all enjoy.
It’s time to fuel the flame we all have been part of into a never-ending five-alarm fire! A beacon that will shine so bright that the industry will hear our collective voice, take notice, and have pride in being recognized by the community as “the best”.
Join me as we introduce The Pinsider’s Choice Awards. The Pinsider’s Choice Awards is an annual award program to recognize the outstanding achievements of people and the work of pinball culture, voted on by the community.
These awards will set the standard for excellence and help elevate the voice of the community (into one) in recognizing the exceptional achievements of the recipients and their commitment to pinball.
The awards recognize the following categories:
Best Pinball Machine
Best Pinball Design
Best Product Quality & Customer Satisfaction
Best Pinball Company
Best Aftermarket Mod
Best Pinball Parts Supplier
Best Pinball Distributor
This is our chance to unite our voices, throw some positive energy at the industry and recognize the achievements in pinball. Let the companies who’ve achieved excellence, as recognized by the community, be able to truly lay claim to “the best”.
Voting will be open until Jan 27th. I encourage you to use your social media contacts, leagues and other creative venues to get the word out on the voting. The larger the participation – the brighter the flame!
We’ll continue to provide updates as we evolve the awards to expand to new categories and broader media exposure. Stay tuned!
