Editor News Make a Comment

The London International Awards (LIA) have named DDB NZ chief creative officer Damon Stapleton to the Print/Poster/Billboard jury at this year’s festival, again being held in Las Vegas (October 1-10).

While Stapleton is the only juror from NZ, no fewer than nine have been appointed from Australia.

“In 2014 almost 10% of LIA statues were brought home to Australia and New Zealand,” said LIA president Barbara Levy (go figure!). “The work from these two powerhouse countries has consistently exhibited the highest degree of creativity.”

The 11 jury panels in 2015 will judge on-site, starting with the first round and concluding with statue discussions. Jurors decide on the Gold, Silver, and Bronze Statue Winners, as well as the finalists. Each jury has the discretion to award a Grand LIA.

The shortlists will be announced as each judging session concludes, with winners being announced 10 November.
