Get recognised for your digital designs: Lovie Awards 2024 opens today

Europe’s largest awards honouring internet excellence are partnering with Creative Boom for the first time this year. Entries are just opening for 2024, including some brand-new categories!

We all want to be recognised for our design work, which is exactly why awards exist. But you can’t win if you don’t enter, so we’re always keen to share news of the best award schemes with you. And when it comes to digital design, it doesn’t get more prestigious than this.

First launched in 2010, the Lovie Awards, presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, celebrate the leading work and creators across culture, technology and business on the European internet. (You may remember how we covered their fantastic new visual identity last Spring.)

Now, as the Lovie Awards enter their 14th year, they’re partnering with Creative Boom to ensure the best digital work from brands, agencies, entertainment, platforms, museums, cultural institutions, causes, and governments gets the plaudits it deserves. Today, they opened submissions for this year’s entries.

Find your niche

There is a wide range of awards to enter in 2024, so you’re sure to find the right niche for your work to be recognised.

Creatives across 25 European countries are invited to submit work across the following categories: AI, XR & Web3, Apps, Platforms & Software, Film & Video, Podcasts, Marketing, Advertising & PR, Social, Websites & Mobile Sites and Beyond.

Meanwhile, the Awards have continued to move with the times, and so there are a host of new categories to enter this year, most notably a new award for Responsible AI.

There are also all-new honours for Architecture, Interiors & Home, Best Event Website, Best Partnership or Collaboration, Best Influencer or Creator Partnership, Best Interview or Talk Show, Sport, Best Indie Podcast, Retail & e-commerce, Fashion & Beauty, Best Immersive Experience and more.

Also, for the first time, the Lovies will present special achievement honours for Brand of the Year and Collaboration of the Year to join existing honours like European Agency of the Year and European Publisher of the Year. You’ll find the full list of award categories here

Focus on collaboration

The 14th Annual Lovie Awards season is dedicated to the topic of collaborations. This will be explored through all-new editorial formats, community events and online dialogues.

Jacqueline Kavanagh, managing director of the Lovie Awards, explains the thinking behind the theme. “Last year, as we reviewed our biggest season of submissions yet, one resounding theme emerged: Europe’s Internet is in collaboration mode,” she says.

“Europe’s digital industries are experiencing a surge of cross-sector collaborations,” she continues. “And in a world increasingly defined by polarisation, these cooperative partnerships that reach across the void have never been more pertinent… when they’re done meaningfully.

“From pooling resources, creative soul mates, open source technology, idea sharing and uniting for a common purpose, this season we’re excited to dig into what makes a good collab tick.”
