Nick Law, Global Chief Creative Officer of R/GA will Chair the prestigious London International Awards 2013 Digital Jury in Las Vegas in October this year.

As Global Chief Creative Officer, Nick is responsible for the creative vision of R/GA, the New York-based agency for the digital age. He guides teams of visual designers, copywriters and interaction designers as they create award-winning work for many Fortune 500 companies. He also ensures that R/GA stays true to the company’s unique legacy of collaboration between world-class creative and ground-breaking technology.

Since 2001 Nick has played a significant role in shaping R/GA’s creative vision. In that time, his work has won numerous international Awards and has been widely published in the United States, the United Kingdom and Asia-Pacific. Within a year of joining the company, he was promoted to Vice President of Visual Design and shortly thereafter, named Executive Creative Director on the Nike account, an account responsible for some of the industry’s most innovative and high profile work.

Of Chairing LIA’s Digital Jury, Nick said, "It's a great privilege (and lots of fun) to be the Chair of this year’s LIA Digital Jury. Our industry is going through such a volatile and confusing transition; deciding what work is smart, creative and appropriate will be no simple task. I'm sure we'll return home after judging exhausted and inspired."

Barbara Levy, President of LIA said, “Nick is a multi-award winning global creative talent. Under his guidance R/GA was named the 2012 LIA Agency of the Year and was awarded a Grand LIA. This year, every Digital entry will be judged, by all the Digital Judges, on-site in Las Vegas. This is no small feat and we are very pleased that Nick is able to take time out of his hectic schedule to lead the process”

28th London International Awards 4th – 12th October 2013, Las Vegas

LIA has established itself as a revolutionary global competition, celebrating creativity, the power of ideas and new technology in all forms of Advertising, Digital and Design. Defining its 28-year history, Barbara Levy, Founder and President of LIA, continues her innovative leadership, meeting the demands of our ever-changing industry. Launched in 1986 with a mission to be different, LIA was the first truly international award, accepting entries in Television, Print and Radio media from around the world. LIA now accepts entries into thirteen unique media types.

LIA Educational Initiative: In 2012, LIA launched the Junior 'Creative Conversations' programme targeted to Young Creative’s from around the globe. As a way to give back to the industry, LIA coordinated a week of seminars, conversations, lunches and dinners that were educational and stimulated discussions around the future of Advertising. The entire initiative, including travel, meals and hotel expenses, was fully funded by LIA.

The 2012 'Creative Conversations' speakers included: Ted Royer, Susan Credle, Israel Diaz, Sonal Dabral, Tony Calcao, Jeremy Craigen, Faris Yakob, Neil French, Doerte Spengler-Ahrens, Bob Garfield, Jonathan Ker, Ralph van Dijk, Scott Elias and Phil Growick.

In 2013, 'Creative Conversations' will once again take place at Wynn/Encore, Las Vegas during the week of the LIA Judging Sessions. Seventy carefully selected Junior Creative’s from around the globe will attend this intimate, invitation-only event.

LIA will open their Entry System at the end of April with a final deadline at the end of July.
