In line with the current position our industry finds itself in we have cancelled the Awards and Creative LIAisons for 2020 but are now working on and looking forward to 2021.

In the coming weeks and months ahead we will keep you updated on the innovations and evolution for both our Awards and Creative LIAisons program in 2021. At LIA we listen to our clients; anyone with any suggestions on how to make our event more relevant and beneficial to the industry can reach out to us.

One thing we know for sure is that development of people is now more important than ever before and we will be working hard to make Creative LIAisons even more of a learning experience than in the past. Our aim is to help the industry, as much as it is possible recover from the situation we are currently in.

Our judging dates will be 16th October through 24th October 2021. The Creative LIAisons program will take place from 17th - 20th October 2021.
From an entries perspective entries finalized by 28th February 2021 will be reduced in price by 50 per cent of the standard entry fee, and entries finalized from 1st March 2021 will be at the normal price. We believe in these times this is a necessary practice as a sign that we understand that whilst great work should be celebrated – we also understand the pain the industry has gone through.
Barbara Levy and the LIA Staff

LIA Chinese Creativity Show


LIA is the first global awards show that honors and celebrates creativity conceived, written and produced solely in the Chinese language. Entries are only accepted in Chinese. Since its inception the juries have been comprised of the top Chinese speaking creatives from around the world. The work is judged in its original format as it was released in the marketplace.

Judging took place in Las Vegas simultaneously with the LIA Global judging. 2019 was the first year that we awarded Gold, Silver and Bronze winners featuring the coveted Red Statue.

The 2021 Awards will have an extended eligibilty period. Judging venue and dates to be announced.

Chinese Creativity Statue Winners are also included in the Campaign Brief Rankings.

Creative LIAisons


See the best, learn from the best, talk with the best, become the best.

LIA created the exclusive and sought after Creative LIAisons program in 2012 as a way of giving back to the industry that supports us. LIA covers the costs of air transportation and accommodations for all LIAisons attendees.    There are no delegate fees imposed on the attendee or their company.
Open to young creatives ages 21 to 30 from around the globe, LIAisons features seminars, panel discussions and interactive workshops. As Creative LIAisons runs concurrently with LIA Judging, attendees receive one-on-one mentoring from many of the LIA jurors. LIA is the only show that allows these attendees unlimited access to the jury and the invaluable experience to sit in on statue discussions as they occur in real-time.
