ANGI - Association for the Nordic Games Industry - is
the trade association for publishers and distributors of computer
and video game entertainment in the Nordic region. We exist to
speak for the the interests, needs and positive image of the video
game and interactive entertainment industry. The board
consists of people from the membership companies.
ANGI works with information, statistics, government contact and international cooperation. The mission included the official chart of best selling games and promoting the Pan-European age rating system PEGI.
Our areas of interest include:
Commercial - ANGI focuses on delivering commercial value for our members through access to unique sales information, networking opportunities, and media partnerships. We actively work with policy makers in all Nordic governments to lobby them on areas such as tax treatment to ensure that the tax environment is not detrimental to the commercial interests of our members.
Intellectual Property - ANGI's work is both defensive and pro-active. Defensive media work includes taking a firm stand against the pirates in public debates, op-eds, blogs etc. Pro-active media work means offering different perspectives and includes uncovering piracy's real winners (ISP:s, internet platforms, tech companies) and losers (culture, society, creators, the public).
Health and Social Responsibility - Interactive entertainment is a leading cultural activity, enjoyed by millions of people in the Nordics. It has never been more important to act as a public information resource, to help consumers and the media better understand these benefits and the industry's commitment to consumer safety and responsible practice. We actively promote PEGI (Pan European Game Infromation), which is the age rating system for video games, with educational and business organisations.
