Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty is the sixth annual Lovie Award bronze winner in the category Website/News.
RFE/RL’s responsive website was nominated along with The Guardian, Vice News and RT in the pan-European competition recognizing outstanding media created for the web.
RFE/RL’s responsive website, which supports 26 languages and is used by audiences in 23 countries where independent media is either banned or not fully established, was recognized for its eye-catching design and easy navigation.
The award is a special honor, since this year’s Lovie Awards were the biggest and most competitive yet, with over 1,500 submissions from 40 countries.
In 2015, a video documentary from RFE/RL’s Russian Service about refugees on both sides of the fighting in eastern Ukraine took the bronze in the Internet Video: Documentary category. In 2014, RFE/RL's Ukrainian Service's video "Bird's-eye View of Euromaidan Protests in Kyiv" won a bronze Lovie award in the category of Internet Video: Events and Live Broadcasting, and the People’s Lovie award.
The Lovie Awards is presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS) and is the leading European award honoring excellence on the Internet.
