Of the 17,660 submissions, only six percent (6%) reached Finalist status. Of those elite selections, 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. 

“Our panel of top creative judges from all over the world thought the Asian work was very sophisticated and cut through, not just in terms of ideas but execution as well,” said Barbara Levy, President of London International Awards. "As an organization devoted to acknowledging creative endeavours, we feel privileged to highlight the tremendous talent that is consistently showcased by Asia."
