The 2017 .eu Web Awards gala, produced byEURid, took place on 21 November at the Theatre du Vaudeville in Brussels, where the five best .eu or .ею websites in their respective category were crowned victorious
BRUSSELS–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Similar to each of the past 3 years during the month of November, the .eu Web Awards gala generates buzz within the .eu community and domain name industry as a whole. The annual .eu Web Awards, launched in 2014, is a competition where .eu and .ею websites have the chance to be nominated for an opportunity to win an awards package that adds credibility and visibility to their online activity. Of the 15 final nominees, a distinguished jury of European stakeholders chooses the best website in each of the Awards’ five categories. The #2017euWA winners were unveiled at the .eu Web Awards gala that took place yesterday evening at the Theatre du Vaudeville in the heart of Brussels, Belgium.
The winners and the special commendations represent an eclectic group, and come from all over the European Union, including Bulgaria (Krina.eu), Latvia (Muniocandela.eu & Letthejourneybegin.eu), Sweden (Greenworks.eu), Germany (Smr-project.eu), and Belgium (Dourfestival.eu), and Poland (Biotrem.eu).
The list of 15 final nominees, in addition to testimonials from past winners, can be seen in EURid’s fall issue of the .eu Illustrated, which focuses entirely on the .eu Web Awards initiative.
The Bulgarian Commissioner for the Digital Economy and Society, Mariya Gabriel, stated “The choice of a .eu domain name is not the choice of a simple extension, but the choice of being seen as European, of believing in the values at the basis of the European culture, of knowing that Europe is and will continue to be a quality label at worldwide level”.
“We are so pleased with how the gala unfolded last night”, commented Giovanni Seppia, EURid External Relations Manager. “Each and every year we are so proud to acknowledge the quality online presence that our domain name holders possess”, he added.
