The London International Awards (LIA) has revealed its 2022 Global and Regional of the Year Winners.
LIA has the highest calibre of jurors from across the globe. All rounds of judging were done onsite in Las Vegas. Our judging process has no pre-judging. Each juror sees every piece of work in their respective Categories. Each jury, along with their President, convened in their judging room to discuss and debate thoroughly before deciding on the Winners. This ensures that all work was judged equally through careful deliberations and robust discussions.
