Last week saw EURid hosting the 2021 .eu Web Awards Gala event in Taormina, Italy, where the finest .eu websites were recognised. In total there were seven winners and one special commendation.
The .eu Web Awards are a competition for the best .eu, .ею and .ευ websites. In 2020 due to COVID-19 pandemic restrictions, the .eu Web Awards were a virtual only event, but in 2021 the event was back in the flesh.
Hosted by Sally Bundock, an esteemed journalist for BBC World News, the gala night saw performances by artists like THePETEBOX, Women Orchestra, MM Dance Company, Compagnia Joculares and the GAP’s Orchestra and ended with a fireworks display.
“Being able to see real faces and raw emotion conveyed by the guests again made the night unforgettable” noted Giovanni Seppia, EURid’s External Relations Manager. “This is what the Web Awards is all about, bringing together people from various industries and backgrounds and honouring them for having chosen a .eu for their online presence.”
But the most important part of the evening was the winners. The seven winners of this year’s .eu Web Awards competition were:
- The Leaders category: sokol.eu
- The Rising Stars category: pintrip.eu
- The Laurels category: federica.eu
- The Better World category: h2020-demeter.eu
- The House of .eu category: hownormalami.eu
- The Best of .ею or .ευ: солети.ею
