Candy Crush Saga and ‘Father of Wi-fi’ collect Lovie Awards at LSO St Luke’s

Social media app Candy Crush Saga and ‘Father of Wi-fi’ Vic Hayes were amongst winners recognised at the annual Lovie Awards held at LSO St Luke’s last night (Wednesday, November 13, 2013).
It is the third year that the awards, named after Ada Lovelace – credited as the world’s first computer programmer – have taken place at the 18th century Grade I listed Hawksmoor church.

The ‘Lovies’ – the European counterpart to the Webby Awards – are the leading European awards recognising excellence in websites, Internet video, online advertising and social and mobile apps. Judges include Stephen Fry, model and actress Lily Cole, fashion designer Henry Holland and musician Imogen Heap.

Other winners included Hailo, Nowness, Soundcloud, Catleidoscope, Tech City News and the BBC’s Digital Glastonbury.

Victoria Steinitz, Sales and Marketing Manager at LSO St Luke’s, comments: “The ‘Lovies’ are a pinnacle for the Internet community and we were delighted to host these prestigious awards once again. LSO St Luke’s is a fantastic venue in close proximity to the ‘Silicon Roundabout’, which has become a hub for technology and online business, meaning we are ideally placed for such an event. We congratulate the winners on their achievements and look forward to welcoming them back to LSO St Luke’s.”

LSO St Luke’s is one of London’s most impressive and stylish venues, offering unique acoustics and cutting edge event technology within a flexible, contemporary range of spaces. Usually associated with musical performances and the LSO’s music education and community programme, LSO Discovery, LSO St Luke’s has grown in popularity for a wide variety of events including conferences, receptions, award ceremonies and gala dinners.
