Factory named Music & Sound Company of the Year as adam&eveDDB, Final Cut and McCann London collect Grand LIAs

UK Wins 116 Statues Including Two Grand LIAs at the 31st Annual London International Awards

The 31st LIA judging was held at the Encore at Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas, convening over a ten-day period. The Juries, led by their respective Jury Presidents, viewed and scored every entry within their medium, ensuring that all the work was judged equally. They concluded with final discussions to determine Grand LIAs, Statue Winners and Finalists.

The United Kingdom picks up an incredible 116 Statues and attains 21 Finalists – 3 Grand LIAs, 35 Gold, 35 Silver and 43 Bronze – making the UK the second-most awarded country in the world at LIA 2016.

John Lewis - Premier Home Insurance titled “Tiny Dancer” was entered by the agency adam&eveDDB, London and the editing house Final Cut, London awarding both companies the Grand LIA in Production & Post-Production.

Diane Jackson, Chief Production Officer at DDB Chicago and LIA’s Production & Post-Production Jury President commented, “Sometimes magic happens. Everything is crafted to create a film that just beautifully captures the purity of an idea, in such a spirited way. John Lewis Home Insurance “Tiny Dancer” nails it. The perfect execution. LIA has a global audience and this film’s charm and message transcends barriers. You want to share it, watch it over and over to delight in the subtle details and of the film, while enjoying a killer music track.”

The Print/Poster/Billboard Jury, with Susan Credle, Global CCO of FCB at the helm, awarded the Billboard Grand LIA to McCann London, London for Xbox / Tomb Raider titled “Survival Billboard”. The “Survival Billboard” multimedia campaign was awarded 14 Statues and attained two Finalists across eight Juries. All of these wins contributed to McCann Worldgroup being named LIA Network of the Year.

“The Grand LIAs went to work that created a movement. Work that launched a bigger creative idea. The Grand LIA work proves that these mediums still have incredible power.” commented Credle. “Over all, I think the jury was not only looking at the craft of the work but also at the strategic thinking behind the work. It was important to remember we are in the business of art and commerce. Small and clever and precious did not get as much attention this year as big and smart and problem-solving.”
