London International Awards Announces the
2024 Jurors from Germany

(New York 3 June 2024) This year 11 top creatives will be representing Germany at LIA’s 39th Annual Judging. London International Awards onsite judging takes place at Encore @ Wynn in Las Vegas commencing 29th September through 7th October 2024.
It has been said that modern German advertising has become more storytelling and emotional to grab attention and connect with audiences.  Germany has proven itself creatively time and again in the LIA awards tally. They always rank among the top winning countries.  Last year, the Grand LIA for Creativity in Business-to-Business, was won by German Indy Agency, Serviceplan Munich.
Barbara Levy, President of LIA, said, “There is nothing formulaic or dull about German advertising. Over the years, we have seen the most innovative and awe-inspiring work from Germany. Many of those talented creatives are on our jury this year.”

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.
