TWO COLOMBIAN AGENCIES ATTAIN FINALIST STATUS FOR PRINT AT THE
25th ANNUAL LONDON INTERNATIONAL AWARDS
(London, 8 November 2010) The 25th LIA judging was held at the Wynn/Encore 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.
This year, two Colombian agencies attained Finalist status in the 2010 London International Awards.
Ogilvy & Mather achieved their Finalist status in the Print - Household Products category for Criterion Knives titled “Fish”.
Young & Rubicam made their Finalist mark in Print - Consumer Campaign for Klunter titled “Horse”, “Porcelain”, “Rabbit”.
“I am very pleased to announce that Ogilvy and Y&R each achieved a Finalist in Print. The Print medium has always been very highly competitive. This year was no exception. The judges keep setting the bar higher. Colombia did well especially as there was not a great number of finalists in this medium this year,” commented Barbara Levy, President of London International Awards.
This year for the first time, LIA is honouring the Network of the Year, Agency of the Year and Production Company of the Year. These winners were decided based on the outstanding work chosen by the Juries across all media. The following is the Point System used to determine each honour:
Grand LIA = 5 points
Gold LIA = 4 points
Silver LIA = 3 points
Bronze LIA = 2 points
Finalist = 1 point
Network of the Year is Y&R
Agency of the Year is RCKR/Y&R, London
Production Company of the Year is MJZ
Out of the total number of 13,562 entries from 79 countries worldwide, only 1.33% attained Finalist. The vast number of submissions reflects the prestige and explosive growth of the London International Awards since its inception in 1986 when 2,600 submissions were considered.
