The Health & Wellness Craft Jury, Laura Gregory, CEO / Founder of Great Guns; Anna Fawcett, Executive Producer at Filmgraphics, Sydney; Ronnie Caltabiano, VP, Associate Creative Director at Area 23 New York and Adrian Bosich, Managing Partner / Director at AIRBAG, Melbourne, awarded Cossette Toronto the Health & Wellness Craft Grand LIA for SickKids Foundation titled “SickKids VS - Undeniable”. This campaign also scored seven Gold, one Silver and three Bronze LIAs.

Laura Gregory commented on awarding the Grand LIA, “It was a blast of relief when we watched SickKids for the Toronto based Hospital for Sick Children.  No embarrassing tear jerking moments, no apologies, just raw, bleeding, defiant, fighting kids. As a seasoned team who’ve seen everything, it’s rare to be moved by the power of perfect visual, sound, cast, production design, animation all resulting into a legal high.  It was a Grand LIA from the first viewing.” She went on stating, “We must take our hat’s off to the client for buying such a brave idea, the creative team Carlos Moreno, Peter Ignazi, Craig McIntosh and Jaimes Zentil and Producer Dena Thompson at Cossette for the idea, director Mark Zibert for choosing his team and not to be forgotten the CAST, the 50 children and their families and over 100 hospital staff that made the film great.  The Cinematography was epic, Jackson Parrell’s portraits of the kids had moments of a framed masterpiece and all the other choices, track, the animation team, the use of locations, props, makeup, came together as one epic, inspiring, exhilarating, battle cry of OUTSTANDING.”

Every member on each Jury Panel, including the Jury President, judges all entries, excluding their own work, in their respective media. Each Jury has the discretion to award a Grand LIA within the media they are judging.
