LIA has established itself as a revolutionary global competition, celebrating creativity, the power of ideas and new technology in all forms of Advertising, Digital and Design. Defining its 28-year history, Barbara Levy, Founder and President of LIA, continues her innovative leadership, meeting the demands of our ever-changing industry. Launched in 1986 with a mission to be different, LIA was the first truly international award, accepting entries in Television, Print and Radio media from around the world. LIA now accepts entries into thirteen unique media types.

LIA Educational Initiative: In 2012, LIA launched the Junior 'Creative Conversations' programme targeted to Young Creative's from around the globe. As a way to give back to the industry, LIA coordinated a week of seminars, conversations, lunches and dinners that were educational and stimulated discussions around the future of Advertising. The entire initiative, including travel, meals and hotel expenses, was fully funded by LIA.
The 2012 'Creative Conversations' speakers included: Ted Royer, Susan Credle, Israel Diaz, Sonal Dabral, Tony Calcao, Jeremy Craigen, Faris Yakob, Neil French, Doerte Spengler-Ahrens, Bob Garfield, Jonathon Ker, Ralph van Dijk, Scott Elias and Phil Growick.

In 2013, 'Creative Conversations' will once again take place at Wynn/Encore, Las Vegas during the week of the LIA Judging Sessions. Seventy carefully selected junior creatives from around the globe will attend this intimate, invitation-only event.
