"Judging at LIA is a one of a kind experience," commented Anuwat Nitipanont, Deputy Chief Creative Officer at BBDO Bangkok and TV/Cinema/Online Film Juror. He went on to say, "Imagine that you are picking up the best pieces of ads in 2018 that will set the tone for what creativity looks like moving forward, while casino-goers are gambling on their luck outside the judging room. We experience the same unexpected juxtaposition when Thai ads appear on the judging screen after having watched hundreds of sleek, sophisticated and Hollywood-like ads. It is a very contrasting and surprising feeling. You can be sure to see some reactions, whether laughing or tearful. I'm glad to see Thai ads perform very well alongside the best pieces of the show."
