Acceptance speeches are hard. But we’ve made it easy for you: Here’s how to declare your love in your Declaration of Lovie Speech.


All Winners in attendance will have the chance to make a “Declaration of Lovie” acceptance speech. So it’s time to get to work: Read on for tips on how to make a big impact with a short speech. And then check out our Top 10 Declarations of Lovie, a collection of some favourites from over the years.

1. Short and Sweet

When we say short, we mean short. You only have 5-15 seconds to deliver your Declaration of Lovie. But when it comes to acceptance speeches, less is definitely more—no one likes to listen to someone drone through a list of “thank-yous.” Think about what you want to express and hone your message ahead of time to deliver the best speech possible. Werkstatt’s speech last year is a great example of keeping it brief:

2. Spread the Love

All Declarations of Lovie must contain the word “love.” Considering that you love what you do, and you love being honoured for it, that shouldn’t be too difficult to fit in. BBC Worldwide opened their speech with it:

3. Accepting the Award Is…

You record one speech per winning work. It’s up to you to decide who is best suited to deliver your Declaration of Lovie, whether it’s just one person or a group. The Institute of Contemporary Music and Kolab Digital delivered their speech together:

4. Say It with Amour

The Lovie Awards is proud to honour winners from countries and cultures all across Europe. We encourage you to deliver your speech in your native language, or the language of your winning work. Grouek delivered their speech in French and English at the 4th Annual Lovies:

5. Have Fun

The most important thing is to let your excitement show. Want your Declaration of Lovie to be funny? Go for it. Want to express your joy in a song (of 15-seconds or less)? Warm up those vocal cords and belt it. Want to dance in a sloth costume? Be our guest (see below). This is a unique opportunity to share your love for your work, your team and your fans around the world. Be creative, and make it count!
