Billed as two romantic and inspiring days for passionate web designers, the Awwwards #LoveDays Conference more than fulfilled our expectations. The iconic Parisian cityscape provided the perfect, if a little rainy, backdrop to an event in which we met the crème de la crème of web agencies, designers, and developers from all over the world; we can't thank you enough for making the conference such a unique experience. Thanks must also go to our sponsor and speakers; without you, #LoveDays would never have been possible.
Despite the apparently ephimeral nature of #LoveDays, the Awwwards conference is here to stay. If you weren't lucky enough to attend this year, keep your eyes peeled for all the latest news on our next event, and don't forget to search hashtags online for pics of the conference as it happened.
Coming up, we are proud and delighted to announce the deserving winners of the Awwwards of the Year:
Into the Arctic, the site by Hello Monday for Greenpeace, has been selected as the winners of Site of the Year by the Awwwards jury. The prize was happily received by Jakob Kahlen, Creative Director and Partner, Sebastian Gram, Senior Digital Designer, and Marcus Fuchs, Interactive Designer. Congratulations!
