UK’s leading digital volunteering service scoops two Lovies

At a packed ceremony held at the BFI on London’s South Bank in November, the Lovie Awards gave out their accolades for Europe’s best digital services. Do-it.org was shortlisted for the People’s Choice in the Best Civic Website category and ended up winning both the People’s Choice AND the Judges Gold for being best in category.

The Lovie Awards aim 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. Other winners on the night included a Lifetime Achievement award for Louis Poulin one of the co-fouders of the internet who was recognised for his CYCLADES network, a precursor to TCP/IP protocols that still supports the web today and a special Data Award went to The European Space Agency in honour of the Rosetta Mission.

The Lovie Awards are the most prestigious pan-European awards honouring online excellence. Now in its fifth year, The Lovie Awards continues to celebrate the most resonant and pertinent stories in Europe, those inside and outside of the prevailing trends.This is the second industry award the the new Do-it.org service has won this year. In May we picked up a WeBBY people’s choice Award for best Association website. Reacting to the win, Do-it Trusts’s CEO Jamie Ward-Smith said, “This is a great achievement for our new service. It’s been a challenging journey to reinvent the nation’s first and largest digital volunteering service this past year and this award, on top of our WeBBY, makes it all worth it!”
