2023 LONDON INTERNATIONAL AWARDS ANNOUNCES THE 
RADIO & AUDIO WINNERS & FINALISTS

(Las Vegas, 17 October 2023) London International Awards (LIA), one of the world’s most distinguished International Awards for creativity, is delighted to unveil the final Winners and Finalists after nine days of rigorous onsite judging by some of the industry’s top luminaries.
 
The Winners and Finalists announced represent some of the top submissions globally across the Radio & Audio categories.
 
RADIO & AUDIO CATEGORY

Celebrating the power of sound, the Radio & Audio category recognizes audio-centric content that engages listeners and stimulates their imagination on behalf of a brand. This year, the jury, headed by Oriel Davis-Lyons, Chief Creative Officer of Mother New York, awarded 30 Statues in this category.

After vibrant discussions and rigorous deliberation, the jury is pleased to award seven Gold, 12 Silver, and 11 Bronze Statues, in addition to commending 11 Finalists.

Oriel shared his perspective on the remarkable work: “We felt very good about the Golds we had given out but for something to be elevated to become a Grand LIA, it has to really jump out. And collectively, we couldn't say that there was something that jumped out from the others.”
