Reacting to his inclusion in the jury, Saluja said, “Obviously it’s a pleasure and an honour to be an LIA juror, alongside some of the biggest commercial directors of our times. I follow the best work from around the world by default, but it’s gratifying to have one’s opinion count tangibly at a global level.”
As an awards show, LIA has established itself throughout its 26-year history as a revolutionary global leader, honouring creativity and new ideas in Advertising, Design and Digital media. Set up in 1986, LIA was the first truly international award to be established in London.
At the time LIA accepted all known traditional media and executions from around the world. The Jury, then and now, is a truly diverse international panel, comprising the most talented, recognised and awarded individuals. Each year, it is the commitment to the integrity of the judging process and the contributions of the Jury Presidents and their respective juries that bolster and uphold LIA’s tradition of awarding only the most inspirational and unique work.
