LONDON, UK — The London International Awards has announced the 2023 Jury Presidents and Jurors for the Digital and Use of Social Media & Influencers and Non-Traditional competitions.

VICE Media Group Chief Creative Officer and Virtue Worldwide President Chris Garbutt will lead the Digital and Use of Social Media & Influencers Jury. Chris, along with his group of elite jurors, will delve into all the platforms that through creativity and innovation offer fresh ways to engage consumers.

The Non-Traditional jury will be led by FCB India Creative Chairperson Swati Bhattacharya. Swati’s deep conviction that it is the “responsibility of brands to inspire people to create the kind of world they deserve” makes her a great fit to chair this jury tasked with the mission to seek and award ideas that are so unique, new, and pure, that they cannot be labeled in a conventional way.

Chris said, “Digital and social marketing is consistently at the frontline of industry change. Tapping into talent and the organic communities they build is a key part of the work we do for our clients at Vice, so I’m hugely excited to be the Jury President for the Digital and Use of Social Media & Influencers category at LIA this year.”

Swati shared, “Non-Traditional is that beautiful fertile strip of imagination where a brand does magic in new places with a new song and new dance. I’m so excited to witness this magic with a bunch of really clever people in the room.”

LIA President Barbara Levy commented, “I am excited that Chris Garbutt and Swati Bhattacharya, two of the most-awarded creatives in the world, will join us in Las Vegas for their first-time judging LIA onsite. They, along with their respective juries, will vote on all work within their competitions from the first round of judging through the statue round. I am eager to see the final results of what I know will be intense deliberations.”
