After celebrating Network of the Year at the 2023 Webby Awards, DEPT® is honoured to now share our record 35 nominations for the 2023 Lovie Awards for our work with brands including eBay, Philips, Bang & Olufsen, Lapierre, and Virgin Galactic.

35 finalists

Competing against 1,200 entries from 30 countries, as a Finalist our work has been selected as among the best in its category and is in the top 20% of all work entered. Each of our nominated projects is eligible to win two awards: a Gold, Silver or Bronze Lovie Award, as chosen by the Academy in each category, and a People’s Lovie Award.

Our nominations this year span Marketing, Advertising & PR, Websites, Social, Film & Video, Apps, Platforms & Software, Web3 & XR, and Beyond. Shortlisted projects by DEPT®, Studio Dumbar/DEPT®, Dogstudio/DEPT®, and Hello Monday/DEPT® range from the stunning custom 3D avatars created for Bang & Olufsen’s ‘See Yourself in Sound’ experience, to empowering women in Philips’ “It’s time to get real about body hair” campaign, the immersive experience of the Star Atlas website, to the huge success of the eBay and Love Island pre-loved fashion campaign.  

Huge congratulations to all of our nominated clients: American Society for Deaf Children; Bang & Olufsen; eBay; Evrnu; Fritz Hansen; Just Eat Takeaway; Lapierre; Meebits; Philips; Star Atlas; The Embassies; Trainline; Van Gogh Museum, and Virgin Galactic.
