10 November 2015

(New York, 10 November 2015)  The 30th LIA judging was held at the SLS Hotel in Las Vegas, convening over a ten-day period. The juries, led by their respective Jury Presidents, viewed and scored every entry within their medium, ensuring that all the work was judged equally. They concluded with final discussions to determine Grand LIAs, Statue Winners and Finalists.

France picks up 33 Statues and 10 Finalists – 9 Gold, 7 Silver and 17 Bronze.

“France brought home 30 Statues, approximately 5% of the total metal awarded this year,” commented Barbara Levy, President of LIA. “ROSAPARK has eight Statue wins, making them the most awarded company in the country. It is an honour to win a LIA Statue, as the jury is comprised of the world’s top advertising, production and design creatives. Some of the juries include Mark Tutssel, Amir Kassaei, Matt Eastwood, Brian Collins, Malcolm Poynton, Pedro Prado, Emad Tahtouh, Ben Priest, Stephan Vogel, Eugene Cheong and John Mescall, just to name a few. LIA prides itself on having juries that have no political agenda, no block voting, and no pressure to vote for their network. Our juries are only concerned with awarding the best of the best. Obtaining a Statue is a significant milestone for any company, as it demonstrates recognition of the highest degree.”
