LIA (formerly known as London International Advertising Awards) is a worldwide Award which honours legends, pioneers, and embodiments of excellence in Advertising, Digital, Production, Design, Music & Sound and Technology. These awards were the first international award of its kind to acknowledge all media from all over the world and judged by a diverse global jury.

The advert celebrates Heathrow’s 70th anniversary and looks forward to another 70 years of first flights. Set to David Bowie’s “When I Live My Dream” from his debut 1967 album, the advert tells the story of the magic of a journey as seen through the eyes of a 5-year-old child and her companion, Owly. This is the first time Heathrow has launched a television advert, which was launched on social media and amplified through a range of channels including press outdoor and a radio partnership.

Jonathan Coen, Heathrow’s Commercial Director said: “We’re so excited to win this prestigious award. Our television advert celebrated the magic of flight through the eyes of a child and the music was the perfect touch for parents who still revel in the magic of Bowie.’
