The LIAs was truly a once-in-a-career experience. The ability to mingle with industry heroes and gleam insights was something that will have a big impact on my career path. Additionally, I made friends with young creatives from all over the world and look forward to maintaining those relationships.
The most valuable part was observing Statue Discussions during the judging process, especially as I had the rare opportunity to be in the room while my work was being judged!
Out of all the speakers, my favorites were Susan Credle, Bob Isherwood, Ted Royer and Chris Smith. Also, I'm very excited about the new program, which will allow for one of us to return next year and share work.
