History Of The Awards

Choose a Year
In 1986, Barbara Levy, Founder and President of London International Awards (LIA), started a global awards show based in London. Barbara is the first and only woman to start an International Awards Show. Since its inception, LIA has been a global Award for creative excellence in all forms of media.
LIA stands for the belief that creativity is everything. We stand as a champion of the creative process, creatives themselves, and of course, great creative ideas and executions. We are proud to award the best creative work each year in 27 distinct Categories.
That’s why each year since 2010, LIA assembles the most celebrated people in the industry in Las Vegas to judge every entry. All jurors are required to vote on all the entries in their respective categories from the First Round through the Statue Round.
100% owned and operated by women.
LIA continues to hold the unique distinction of being the only international award owned by a woman and having a full-time staff of only women.
