    The RT broadcaster took seven trophies at the prestigious pan-European Lovie Awards that honors achievements in digital media, the broadcaster said in a press release on Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The interactive multimedia project "Chernobyl: Fallout 30" marking the 30th anniversary of the nuclear disaster won silver for "Web: Best Practices" and a bronze for "Web: Best Use of Animation/Motion Graphics". The broadcaster’s website as well as social media platforms received bronze trophies in the "Web: News" and "Social: Best Overall Social Presence" categories respectively.

    RT also won three The People’s Lovie Awards in three categories: "Web: News," "Social: Best Overall Social Presence," "Web: Best Use of Animation/Motion Graphics." In the category "Social: Best Overall Social Presence" RT beat The Guardian and the Game of Thrones TV series.

    "To receive seven prizes in such a prestigious and high-profile digital media competition — that's incredibly cool! But to win the People's Lovie in almost all the categories where we contested means even more: it proves that RT enjoys highly engaged audience, and when your real fans vote for you to win – it means more than any gold. We thank the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences for this honor, and we thank everyone who voted for us – it is our joint victory!" Kirill Karnovich-Valua, RT’s Head of Online Projects, said.

    The Lovie Awards was created in 2011 and became the "first-ever pan-European award" created to describe the content created for Europe's digital market, according to the award's press service.

    The RT television network encompasses three 24/7 news channels broadcasting from Moscow in English, Arabic and Spanish in more than 100 countries around the globe. The network also comprises RT America and RT UK channels broadcasting from studios in Washington and London.
