(London, 14 November 2011) The 26th 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.

DDB Colombia Bogota was recognized with not just one but two Statues at the 2011 LIA.
Both their Statues were won in the medium of Radio for Military Forces of Colombia titled “The Code”. The Gold Statue was won in Innovative Use of Radio.  The Silver statue was awarded in Public Service/Social Welfare.

Ogilvy & Mather Colombia, Bogota was the only other Colombian agency to win metal this year.  Their work for Hot Wheels “Loop” won a Bronze in Non-Traditional – Recreational.

“We are seeing more and more fresh winning work from Colombia,” commented Barbara Levy, President of LIA. “Winning a Gold and Silver is amazing especially in the medium of Radio.”

The following have attained Finalist status:

Y&R Colombia, Bogota

  • Finalist in The NEW Category for Fundación Telefónica “Kid Rescue”
  • Finalist in Print – Consumer Campaign for Ofixpres Highlighter "Moby Dick" ; "Le Petit Prince"; "Don Quijote"

Marshall Street Editors, London was awarded a Grand LIA in the Medium of TV/Cinema/Online Film – Technique for Heineken “The Entrance.”

JWT, Shanghai was awarded a Grand LIA in the medium of Print for Samsonite Suitcase titled “Heaven and Hell.”

Of those elite selections, only 0.4% won Gold Statues; 0.7% Silver Statues; 0.9% Bronze Statues and 1.5% Finalist.
