First of all, I’d like to thank Barbara, Patricia and Wayne for inviting me to judge this year.
LIA has been a truly exceptional experience for me. A very intimate and small group of judges from around the globe. All of them incredibly talented and with unique points of views which, sometimes, made for heated (but constructive) discussions. David did an amazing job wrangling us all.
Overall, the standard of work was amongst the highest I’ve seen across the juries I’ve been sitting on this past year. And Vegas is arguably the coolest and most unique location for an award show possible.
I’ve learned a lot, made a bunch of new friends and would come back to judge any time.
