“Smartphones have become a natural extension of one’s personality and style, so exposing these fans to the latest in LG mobile technology, namely the all-new LG G3 smartphone that launched in the U.S. just last week, made sponsoring the MTV Fandom Awards a natural fit,” said Chang Ma, senior vice president of marketing, LG MobileComm USA. LG is inspired by how passionate MTV and Comic-Con fans are about self-expression and influencing their generation’s pop culture through the comics, movies, books, TV shows and music they support.
