Jury Duty: LIA
Sweetshop CEO and Partner Wilf Sweetland has been announced as the Jury President for Production, Post Production and Music Videos at the 2019 London International Awards.
Entering 34 years, Created for Creatives, LIA strives for honesty and openness. It stands for great creative ideas and execution, and is proud to assemble the best talent every year to do so.
Barbara Levy, President LIA, said, “Our mantra is that we are a show for creatives. We want to award the best creative ideas that surface every year. That’s why we only invite the top people, who are themselves celebrated and awarded individuals, to preside as Jury Presidents. The LIA Staff and I investigate and discuss, a very lengthy process, the selection of our presidents and our jurors. You can only have the best creative show when you have the best and most credible juries.”
Jury members from around the world will convene in Las Vegas to decide on the Gold, Silver, and Bronze Statue Winners, as well as the Finalists. Each panel also decides on whether a Grand LIA will be awarded.
This year, to reflect the dynamic and shifting landscape of communications, LIA is introducing two new standalone competitions – Social Influencers and Podcasts.
LIA is just one of five global shows that are included in the Warc Creativity 100 (formerly the The Gunn Report) rankings. LIA is accepting entries from now until 15th August. Judging commences from 1st October until 10th October, 2019 in Las Vegas.
