British internet creatives called to compete
British freelancers can now pit their website, online advertising, internet video, mobile, podcast or voice/social project against their European rivals to see if it’s worthy of an award.
Inviting Britons who fancy their chances to compete, The Lovie Awards said works in such online categories will get judged by English, French, German, Spanish, Dutch, Swedish and Italian adjudicators.
In this sense, the contest -- which typically attracts 1,500 entries from 30 nations – is a mass jostle to secure the “only pan-European awards” dedicated to ‘honouring the full breadth of the European internet.’
And as the internet is expanding so too is The Lovies, as for its ninth annual awards it will include a ‘Voice, Social Content Series & Campaigns’ category and ‘Video Series’ category.
For a full list of categories, judging criteria and details on the intimidating-sounding judging panel – comprised of musician Imogen Heap, and the actor and writer Stephen Fry, see The Lovie Award’s official site.
The organisers said: “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 individual creators.”
To stand a chance of accolade-lifting, the accompanying stardom and uttering the coveted “7 Words of Lovie Acceptance Speech,” entrants must submit no later than July 19th but should send their work before May 17th to avoid a hefty ‘late fee.’
