It was an honor to be in the room with so many brilliant minds from the industry. I was very impressed with the creative work from the UAE, with its highly relevant cultural insights and unique solutions."

Paul Chan, Chief Creative Officer of Cheil Hong Kong and LIA Integration Juror, stated, "It was an absolute pleasure to be a part of this integration jury, led by the one and only Mark Tutssel. Hands down, this is one of the strongest line-ups I've been locked in a room with. Thoughtful, insightful, critical and opinionated. It was a cracking year for work too. The top pieces were all incredibly brave, powerful and thought provoking.
