London International Awards
Announces the 2024 Jury Presidents

(2 April 2024) London International Awards (LIA), now in their 39th year, is pleased to announce the 2024 Jury Presidents. LIA is bringing the top industry people to Las Vegas to chair their jury panels from 29th September through 7th October 2024.
The integrity of every jury under their respective Jury Presidents will set the creative benchmark for 2024, as well as, elevate the quality of the work for the industry at-large.
Barbara Levy, President of LIA, said: “What the LIA jurors do in the judging rooms is serious business. That’s why we spend weeks choosing our Jury Presidents. You just have to look at the list to see the diverse talent among our Presidents.  Each of them highly respected by their peers, talented creative people who have and will continue to drive the industry to greater heights. Mediocrity is not in their vocabulary or portfolio. They know great storytelling; they can tell the difference between persuasion and pure hype. The result: the best body of work from 2024 that will re-energize and inspire the industry.”
Terry Savage, LIA Chairperson added, “Leadership of any jury is critical to the outcome. LIA prides itself in having great Jury Presidents, who understand not just the work but also the cultural nuances associated with any Global Award Show.”
Approximately 200 jury members, from around the globe, will convene in Las Vegas to be part of the judging process. All rounds of judging are done onsite at the Encore @ Wynn Hotel. Every juror is required to see every piece of work in their respective Category. These panels decide on the Gold, Silver and Bronze Statue Winners, as well as, the Finalists. Each panel has the discretion to award a Grand LIA.
As there is no off-site pre-judging, all judges are fully involved from the beginning to the end, so everyone is privy to the final results before they are published.

Notes to the Editor:

London International Awards (LIA) is a Creative Awards Festival, established in 1986, by Barbara Levy, President. Barbara was the first woman to found and operate an International Awards Show honoring multiple media types. 39 years later, 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.

LIA stands 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 all forms of media: Advertising, Design, Package Design, Data, Technology, Craft, Health, Pharma, Music, PR, Innovation, Strategy, B2B and much more.

That’s why every year, LIA invites industry leaders and trendsetters on both the creative and client side, assembling the most celebrated people for 10 days of judging in Las Vegas. To cut through the thousands of entries to get to the metal, you need the best jurors from diverse communities – not just meeting DEI standards but having true representation from across the regions, companies, networks, holding companies, independent companies to clients.

All members on our diverse global jury panels, including the Jury Presidents, judge all entries in their respective competitions with the exception to work that they personally collaborated on or was entered from their company. The LIA judging process requires that jurors are onsite for all judging from the first round through statue discussions. There is no pre-judging to narrow the entries.

Creative LIAisons Funded by LIA

LIA created the exclusive and sought after Creative LIAisons educational initiative in 2012, as a way of giving back to the industry that supports us. Our mission is to develop, educate, inspire and nurture emerging talent. That in a nutshell is the driving purpose behind the Creative LIAisons initiative. What began as a vision in 2012, became a zeal which crystallized into the Creative LIAisons Global Coaching Academy. This game-changing training academy is a powerful springboard for the current and next generation of talent. Consisting of both onsite and virtual programs, approximately 300 Creative LIAisons Mentees participate annually.
