LIAA 2007 Grand Prize Winners

94 entries from 25 companies in the United States have been chosen as Gold and Silver Statue winners in the mediums of Design, Digital Media, Integrated Media, Package Design, Poster & Outdoor, Print, Radio and Television/Cinema for the 2007 London International Awards at the Hippodrome this evening. Now in its 22nd year, the London International Awards honours excellence in Advertising, Design and Digital Media.

One U.S. entry captured the Grand Prize Statue for Print. Saatchi & Saatchi, New York won the Grand Prize with its Print ads, “20th Century,” “Life,” “2/23/07.” Only six Grand Prizes were awarded at the ceremony, chosen from a pool of 17,660 submissions.

18 entries from the U.S. reached Finalist status. Of the 17,660 total submissions from 81 countries, only six percent (6%) reached Finalist status. From that elite group, 1.4% attained Silver status and only 0.5% were awarded Gold Statues. 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.

“It is clear that the USA continues to produce some very sophisticated work that is impacting the advertising industry as a whole,” said Barbara Levy, President of London International Awards. "As an organization devoted to acknowledging creative endeavors, we feel privileged to highlight the tremendous talent that is consistently showcased by the United States."
