LIA jury unveils this year’s Non-Traditional and Music and Sound winners

LAS VEGAS, USA — London International Awards (LIA), one of the world’s most renowned global awards shows, has released its next batch of winners and 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 recognizing 10 Finalists.

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

Elated by the boundary-pushing work that rose to the top, Susan 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 of 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.”

Helmed by Jury President Joel Simon, CEO and Chief Creative Officer of JSM Music, the Music & Sound jury presented this year’s distinguished winners. 

After thorough evaluation and passionate discussions, the jury proudly awarded a total of 22 Statues in the Music & Sound category.

The Music & Sound category celebrates creative excellence and exceptional craftsmanship in curating, mixing, producing, or adapting music and sound for campaigns and brands across various media and platforms. After a thorough judging process, the jury has granted two Gold, eleven Silver, and nine Bronze Statues, alongside recognizing eight Finalists. 

“We didn’t have a Grand LIA this year because we only have two Golds. There wasn’t anything that blew us all away where we go: that was unbelievable!” expressed Joel. “We had really good, well-crafted, well-thought-out work. But we didn’t have one that blew us all away.”

On the Music & Sound judging, Barbara Levy commented, “We only have a couple of Golds in Music this year. Was the jury tough? Yes, they are all consummate professionals in their disciplines so anything that doesn’t meet the mark won’t make it into the metal table. Anything that wins is truly well deserving.”

Created for creatives, LIA has the highest caliber of jurors from across the planet. All rounds of judging were done onsite in Las Vegas over nine days with no pre-judging. Each juror saw every piece of work in their respective Categories. Each jury, along with their President, convened in their judging room to discuss and debate thoroughly before deciding on the Winners. This ensured that all work was judged equally through careful deliberations and robust discussions. 

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