Deadline for entries and nominations for awards is Wednesday February 21 2018.
The Brand & Lifestyle Licensing Awards will be returning for the third year in 2018 – and are now open for entries.
The 2018 awards programme will build on rewarding excellence in brand licensed merchandise and IP management, as well as retail execution.
Next year’s event will also see the introduction of a new category – the Inspired Innovation Brand Licensed Product or Range Award aims to recognise truly inspired product creation involving a brand licence.
The entry and nomination process for all categories is free and via online submission – all the forms can be accessed from the dedicated B&LLAs website by clicking here.
The deadline for entering is Wednesday, February 21 2018, following which a validation process for each of the awards sections will take place, involving panels of industry experts pertinent to the categories.
