LONDON, ENGLAND — London International Awards has announced the Jury Presidents and Jurors for the following competitions: TV/Cinema; Online Film; Production & Post-Production, and Music Video.
Daniel Fisher is Global Executive Creative Director for Unilever and Special Projects at Ogilvy. He has produced iconic advertising for some of the world’s best-known brands, such as John Lewis, Virgin Atlantic, The Sunday Times, Netflix, Harvey Nichols, and, of course, Dove. A multi-disciplinary thinker, he has found himself conceiving retail concepts, designing mobile phone operating systems, curating major art exhibitions, and designing an award-winning fashion boutique. Dan’s years of experience will guide him as he presides over this diverse group of creative leaders as they decide on the statue winners.
Daniel said, “We may live in a fragmented media landscape, but for many of us, the film was our first love, so I’m incredibly honored to take on the role of President of the TV/Cinema and Online Film jury at this year’s LIAs. I can’t wait to meet the rest of the jury, to look at the best films the industry has to offer, and to discuss and debate with them what should win.”
Barbara Levy, President of LIA, stated, “We are honored to have Daniel preside over the TV/Cinema and Online Film jury. His passionate belief in the power of creativity makes him the perfect choice to guide this jury in awarding the most outstanding work.”
Charlotte Lepot is Executive Producer at DIVISION, an award-winning creative production company. She started her career at Partizan, a world-renowned production company, where she cut her teeth as head of Music Videos. Since that debut, she earned her stripes by working on iconic and unforgettable music videos. Charlotte continues to innovate and evolve both herself and the industry with the films she produces. Both fresh young directors and acclaimed household names have carefully but trustingly placed their visions in Charlotte’s hands.
Charlotte commented, “Discovering, discussing, commenting, sharing, learning, and arguing about music videos is my passion! I’m always curious to see what’s next and get inspired by the greatest films from all around the world. It’s a big responsibility and a huge honor to be the Jury President of the Music Video Production & Post-Production categories this year. I’m thoroughly looking forward to the enlightened and passionate discussions we will have about this year’s films.”
Barbara said, “This is the first time that Charlotte judges LIA. Selecting her to preside over the Production & Post Production and Music Video jury was an easy decision for us. Her diverse experience producing music videos, films, and commercials makes her the perfect choice to guide this jury in awarding the best executions in these craft categories.”
