Every year we assemble the best creative talent from around the world to judge our entries. We are very selective as to who our jurors are, they must be the best of the best, highly recognized, award-winning individuals from within their respective fields.

But why is London International Awards in Las Vegas?? We get this a lot. It started as a challenge from Jeremy Craigen. Jeremy said he would only judge LIA if Barbara moved the judging to Las Vegas. We didn't ask WHY he wanted it to be in Vegas and we're still afraid to ask that. Since we pride ourselves on being the show that is run for creatives, we found this to be a challenge well representative of this ever-changing industry. Turned out to probably be the best move we ever made. Las Vegas is one of the most creative cities in the world, a lighted oasis in the middle of the desert. Judging there is a unique experience. Jurors feel more connected to each other, with more conversation and interaction, and the results reflect that.
 
All rounds of judging are done on-site at the Encore-Wynn Hotel. And every judge is required to see every piece of work in their respective media. These panels decide on the Gold, Silver, and Bronze Statue Winners, as well as the Finalists. Each panel, at their discretion also decides on whether a Grand LIA will be awarded.
 
When all the awards are decided, every judge on each jury knows the results of their deliberations. Unlike some other shows, the results are open to the judges. We believe all should be transparent and satisfactory. Otherwise, what's the point of having such great talent in the same room?
