Last call for entries to the License This! Competition

Published on: 26th August 2015

There are now less than two weeks remaining to enter Brand Licensing Europe’s License This! Competition, which closes on Friday 4th September.


RaNT! was named the winner of the 2014 License This! Challenge

Launched in 2010, the challenge offers new creative concepts the opportunity to break into the global licensing industry. It is open to any new property that has no merchandising deals already in place or pending. A shortlist of four entries will be selected by the judges, which will be pitched in front of an audience at the show on Thursday 15th October.

This year’s prize is valued at over £6,000. The winner will receive a fully furnished nine square metre stand at BLE 2016 to bring the property to market, along with LIMA membership for one year and one ticket to the LIMA Licensing Essentials Course & Spring Fling Networking Party in May 2016.

The judging panel for this year’s competition is led by Kelvyn Gardner, managing director of LIMA UK.
“License This! is a great way to get your property in front of a panel of licensing experts” says Darren Brechin, BLE event director. “Shortlisted properties benefit enormously from presenting to the judges, who all offer valuable advice and insight. All our past winners are still exhibiting at BLE and seeing their businesses grow.”
