About the Lovie Awards
The mission of the Lovie Awards is to recognise the unique and resonant nature of the European internet community – from Europe’s top web and creative networks and content publishers to cultural and political organisations and bedroom bloggers.
Now in its third year, The Lovie Awards continues to celebrate the most resonant and pertinent stories in Europe, those inside and outside of the prevailing trends.
The awards reflect the tremendous growth of the internet as a tool for business and everyday lives. This year we are expanding the mission to honour European excellence by adding to the judging academy, increasing the number of categories in Websites, Online Advertising, Internet Video, Mobile & App and introducing honours in Social.
Why call it the Lovies?
‘Lovie’, named in honour of Ada Lovelace, represents outstanding achievement in computer technology. Ada Lovelace is credited as being the first programmer and is a lasting symbol of European innovation and creative ingenuity.
The heart is a universal symbol for love and represents the passion evoked by awesomeness on the internet. No other medium has created such enthusiastic, dedicated followers quite like the web!
Presented by IADAS
The Lovie Awards is presented and will be judged by The International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences, a body of leading web experts, business figures, luminaries, creative celebrities and other internet professionals.
