The Lovie Winner Index

Meet the top companies in the top performing markets honoured at last year’s 11th Annual Lovie Awards!

For over a decade, The Lovie Awards has been recognised as the biggest and most prestigious honour for European Internet excellence. Annually, The Lovie Awards reviews work entered from over 30 countries. While The United Kingdom over-indexes in the competition, Denmark and France are growing markets, with a number of high-calibre projects entered into The Lovie Awards. As such, we know firsthand that the most innovative digital work is being made by teams around the world, from tech companies building new products for a connected world, to creative teams that have merged new technologies with compelling storytelling and strategic thinking. It has become abundantly clear that the future of the Internet belongs to teams who are pushing the bounds of their imaginations and digital technologies to inspire, connect and improve the world.

The top companies featured in our 2021 Lovie Country Index represent the teams that are doing just that.

HOW IT WORKS: Our index showcases which countries produced the most Lovie-recognized projects across all categories in last year’s 11th Annual Lovie Awards. It also highlights the top-performing companies in each respective country, accompanied with insights about the work and industries they represent. *Countries are listed with the highest-performing countries, and representative companies, top to bottom. Lovie Wins are weighed more heavily in calculations.*
