The London International Awards (LIA) 2022 is going back to Las Vegas for this year’s judging. LIA’s judging panels are comprised of the top creatives in the world, from veterans to up-and-coming stars. The judging process requires that jurors see every entry in their respective competition, from the first round through statue discussions. There is no pre-judging to narrow the entries. This practice ensures that all jurors see every piece of work.
Bas Korsten, Global Chief Creative Officer of Wunderman Thompson, will be in the Jury President’s seat for the 2022 Digital and Social Media & Influencers judging. This diverse jury represents a wide range of countries, backgrounds and specialist expertise from all corners of the industry.
“There is so much creativity and innovation on all the platforms. I can’t wait to see, discuss and celebrate all the great cases from all over the world. Such an inspiring territory. Such an exciting jury to lead for LIA, a true creatives award show!” commented, Bas Korsten, Wunderman ThompsonBarbara Levy, President of LIA, commented: “It’s such an honor to have Bas Korsten lead this jury. There is so much digital work out there. But the members of this jury have such a critical eye; we know that under Bas’ leadership, anything that survives the culling will be exceptionally breakthrough and deserving of a LIA Statue.”
The Transformative Business Impact and Creative Use of Data Jury will be led by Adrian Mills, Lead Partner, Creative Brand Advertising of Deloitte Digital. The members for this jury were selected for their talent and expertise in the realm of brand development, data and how the landscape of businesses are pivoting to keep up with the ever-changing cultural norms. The awarded work will be game changers in the industry as the judges bring their insightful perspective to judging.
“This is the second year of the Transformative Business Impact category and the first time it’s been combined with Creative Use of Data. I’m hoping to see entries that build on last year’s work, where we saw creativity and data used to solve actual business problems, not just communicate someone else’s solutions. Real business change, with creativity at the heart is what we’ll be looking to award this year”, stated Adrian Mills, Deloitte Digital.
Barbara Levy, commented, “We are pleased to have Adrian preside over this jury. Not just to judge Transformative Business Impact, which he chaired last year, but to preside over Creative Use of Data as well. I am pleased that Adrian, along with his stellar jury will be able to peruse and discuss the entries onsite in Las Vegas. It will be enlightening to see how businesses have used creativity to transform their brands and connect with consumers in new and novel ways.”
