You have until midnight tonight (Thursday 17 June) to submit your entries and nominations for this year’s accolades. All of the award categories – including those for licensed products, licensed properties, retail, marketing, honorary achievement, plus the awards for sustainability, international retail and licensed live events – can be entered, for free, via the website.
The Licensing Awards 2021 (owned and organised by Max Publishing) cover licensed product launches, licensing activity and licensed retailing execution in the 12 months up to the end of May 2021.
Entry and judging of all product categories will once again be done online. The process is quick and easy and means that there is no need to send any physical samples of products.
As ever, the product awards will be judged by key retailers from across the UK market – last year more than 200 retailers virtually judged the categories.
The deadline for all entries is Thursday 17 June.
Following the digital awards in 2020, due to the pandemic, the intention is to return to the live event on Tuesday 14 September in The Great Room at The Grosvenor House Hotel in London. The situation will be closely monitored, with guests assured that ticket and table bookings are refundable/deferrable should plans need to be altered.
The Licensing Awards 2021 have the strong backing of major names in the industry as official sponsors. The headline sponsor of the awards is Brand Licensing Europe, while Licensing International is an official supporter.
