The Lovie Awards (a “sister award” to the Webbys) are awarded for outstanding online work in Europe. This is the first year that these awards have been given.  There were almost  700 entries from 20 different countries,  14 of which have received awards. The winners will be honoured at a ceremony in London on 11 November.

The Secret Annex Online

The Secret Annex Online is a virtual version of the building at 263 Prinsengracht in Amsterdam where Anne Frank was in hiding for more than two years and where she wrote her world famous diary. As with millions of other Jews,  Anne did not survive the horrors of the  concentration camps. Since its launch in 2010, 900,000 people have already visited the Secret Annex Online. Visitors stay on average for 17 minutes (!) on the site. The Lovie Award is the fifth international prize won by the Secret Annex Online. Previous prizes include the Adobe Max Award, the European Mixx Award, a Red Dot Design Award and a prestigious Webby Award.

The Anne Frank Timeline

The Anne Frank Timeline  is a visual timeline which places Anne Frank’s story in the context of important historical events.  The Anne Frank Timeline starts in 1914 with the outbreak of the First World War and Otto Frank’s conscription into the German army. It describes Anne Frank’s story, the period in hiding during the Second World War and continues through to today including the significance of the diary and the Anne Frank House.
