2023 LONDON INTERNATIONAL AWARDS ANNOUNCES 
THE NON-TRADITIONAL WINNERS & FINALISTS

(LAS VEGAS, 14 October 2023) London International Awards (LIA), one of the world’s most renowned Global Awards Shows, is thrilled to release its next batch of Winners & Finalists fresh from the judging room. 

Susan Credle, Global Chair/Global Chief Creative Officer of FCB Worldwide, led the Non-Traditional jury. The Non-Traditional category, a celebration of ideas so fresh and pure that they defy category conventions, aims to honor work that is brilliant in its thinking and innovative in its execution. After deep discussions, the jury has granted a Grand LIA and a Public Service/Charity/NGO Grand LIA, 12 Gold, 16 Silver, and 15 Bronze Statues, on top of recognising 10 Finalists. 

The jury awarded the Grand LIA to Wunderman Thompson, Antwerp for their work titled "The Mammoth Meatball", created for Vow. The Public Service/Charity/NGO Grand LIA was awarded to Publicis Conseil for their work, "Prêt à voter" created for Solar Impulse. 

Elated by the boundary-pushing work that rose to the top, Jury President Susan Credle expressed, "I'm very proud of what we have curated. The most important thing about curating a show is: will it inspire people when they get a brief? Or will they think in different ways about a problem? Or will I think of new ways to apply creativity?" she went on to say, "When you are looking at great work, it makes being in the jury a wonderful experience. We had a lot of Golds. I think we were all surprised that the one that won, won. It was a crazy, outlier idea. This industry needs to be reminded that we can do really good things and messaging that is fun. We didn't have a lot of Public Service in our group. But there was a piece called "Solar Impulse". It was about a book of laws that were written by lawyers, so that all the government had to do was pull a piece paper out and pass a law.  It was just a brilliant idea. What the jury felt was this was actionable. It took the pain point away and went straight to not an awareness but an action.”

Barbara Levy, President of LIA, added, "When you have a passionate, strong and talented jury, you can be rest assured that nothing slipped through the cracks. The work that won was a departure from the expected. The Grand LIAs were pieces of work that broke the mold yet resonated with the audience.”

Created for Creatives, LIA brings together esteemed jurors from around the world for a thorough onsite judging process in Las Vegas over nine days. LIA prides itself on the absence of pre-judging. This ensure that each juror gives their full attention to evaluating every submission within their respective categories, fostering a fair and rigorous selection of the Winners and Finalists.

Stay tuned for more exceptional world-class work that impressed our distinguished jurors in our other panels.
