318 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."
