TRT World wins the People’s Lovie Award for best internet video in the category "News & Politics" for the explainer video on Daesh (ISIS). The Lovie Awards honors the best of the European internet and celebrates the most resonant and pertinent pan-European stories- inside and outside of the prevailing trends.

With nearly 1,500 entries from over 33 countries, and over 55,000 votes in the People’s Lovie Awards, TRT World’s video received recognition not only from International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences (IADAS) but also the online public.

“For a team that’s barely 3 years old, it’s a great achievement to receive people’s choice award at the Lovies. To win with the vote of the audience is where the value is, so it’s a huge win for us. We’re very proud that our digital teams continuously push themselves to find creative solutions for people to access and engage with our journalistic work. This award belongs to everyone - as it’s a culmination of hard work, ideas, experimentation and building a media org from scratch over the last few years” said Riyaad Minty, Director of Digital Strategy and Content at TRT World.

The finalists of the 8th Annual Lovie Awards were announced yesterday, 10 October honoring the contributions and contributors to the internet and digital media.
