Call for UK entrants to the Licensing Excellence Awards 2014

Published on: 19th February 2014

LIMA UK is asking the UK licensing industry to submit entries for the 2014 Annual LIMA International Licensing Excellence Awards; the deadline for nominations is 3rd March, 2014.LEA-logo300

Kelvyn Gardner, managing director of LIMA UK, said: “In the last two years we have seen a record number of submissions from the UK, second only to the USA, which clearly demonstrates that the UK licensing industry is punching above its weight. In 2013 some 25 UK companies had submissions win through for consideration by the Nominations Committee for final selection and 2012 saw a record five UK winners. The licensing industry in the UK is demonstrating growth and excellence, and these awards give companies clout on the global playing field. Plus, it’s pretty cool to receive one of these prestigious awards at the ceremony in Las Vegas during the world’s biggest licensing event.”

There are several categories to choose from and winners will be announced at the LIMA Opening Nights Awards Ceremony, on Tuesday 17th June, at the Licensing International Expo in Las Vegas.

The award categories include:

  • Art
  • Character/Toy Brand
  • Corporate Brand
  • Film, Television, Celebrity or Entertainment
  • Sports
  • Licensed Promotion
  • Retailer

Only licensing programmes or products retailing during 2013 can be considered. Winners are voted for by LIMA members. In addition to the category entries, the awards committee will choose a Licence of the Year, awarded to the property that has had a significant and lasting impact on the licensing marketplace during 2013. Any company wishing to put themselves forward for nomination should visit the LIMA website at
