In total 820 LIA statues, in addition to finalists, were awarded from 40 countries. The top countries were United States (209), United Kingdom (95), Australia (70), Germany (66) and Japan (59).
The 32nd Annual London International Awards judging was held at Encore at Wynn Las Vegas, convening over a 10-day period early last month.

Ogilvy & Mather's Asian Network performance was driven by strong performances from Singapore (6 Gold, 4 Silver, 2 Bronze and 1 Finalist), Bangkok (4 Gold, 4 Silver and 2 Bronze) and Japan (2 Silver and 7 Bronze).
