Jacqueline Kavanagh, Managing Director of the Lovie Awards, said “Last year marked the dawn of a new era for the Lovie Awards. As we reviewed our biggest season of submissions yet, one resounding theme emerged: Europe’s Internet is in collaboration mode. Europe’s digital industries are experiencing a surge of cross-sector collaborations – 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.’
