The prestigious European Lovie Awards shortlisted Encounter Edu’s website under the 'Schools and Education' category.
The Lovie Awards recognises the unique and resonant nature of the European internet community—from Europeʼs top digital and creative agencies and content publishers to cultural and political organisations and individual creators.
“Encounter Edu has excelled in its category, showing fantastic prowess in digital innovation and creativity,” says Nicolas Roope, Executive Chair of International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS).
IADAS, which selects The Lovie Award Winners, is comprised of Internet industry experts celebrating Europe for excellence across websites, online advertising, internet video, mobile & apps and social. “This award is a testament to the skill, ingenuity, and vision of its creators”, concludes Roope.
The Encounter Edu website was designed by One Darnley Road, a London-based digital and brand agency. Valuing newness and innovation, One Darnley Road, also puts a premium on long-standing partnerships.
“We’ve worked with One Darnley Road since 2008, and they have been amazing in making our education vision an online reality,” says Jamie Buchanan-Dunlop, Founder and Executive Director, Encounter Edu.
Integrated with classroom teaching, Encounter Edu live programmes are aligned to STEM and geography curricula. The platform enables access to rare imagery and video from expeditions and research projects, be it the frozen north in the Arctic, along coral reefs or exploring the deep ocean in a submersible. Making real world learning accessible by innovating the use of tech in the classroom, it is free for teachers, parents and young people.
In its ninth year, the Awards reflect the tremendous growth of the internet as a tool for business and everyday lives with entries from over 33 European countries.
