Notes to the Editor:
London International Awards (LIA) is the Creative Awards for Creatives. We stand as a champion of the creative process, creatives themselves, and of course, great creative ideas and executions, and are proud to award the best creative work each year.
 
Barbara Levy, was the first woman to start and operate an International Awards Show honoring multiple media types. Now, 37 years later, the company is still the only International Awards Show completely owned and operated by a woman.
 
LIA’s mantra is that creativity is everything in the advertising, design and technology business in all forms of media. That is why each year, LIA assembles the most celebrated creatives in the industry together in Las Vegas to judge all the submitted work.
 
All jurors are required to be on-site in Las Vegas for all rounds of judging. Every juror on every judging panel sees every piece of work within every category of their competitions at the same time. There is no pre-judging or division of the work amongst the jury.
 
As a way to give back to the industry, LIA fully funds an educational program called Creative LIAisons at an approximate cost of $250,000 USD annually.  The mission of Creative Liaisons is to develop, educate, inspire and grow young creative talent. The goal of this initiative is to be the elite standard in creative coaching.
