HONORING EXCELLENCE IN LICENSING

For 36 years, the Licensing International Excellence Awards have served as the pinnacle of achievement in the global brand licensing industry. 

Every year, Licensing International shines a spotlight on the innovation and accomplishments of our colleagues from around the world, at the only global Licensing Excellence Awards. This year, we will be hosting the awards virtual once again, so we can all celebrate together!! In addition to showcasing the year’s best brands, properties, products, retailers and activations, we also celebrate the professionals who are shaping our business by celebrating our Rising Stars and announcing this year’s Licensing Industry Hall of Fame inductees.

AND THE WINNERS ARE...

22 award winners from seven countries – China, Finland, France, Japan, Singapore, United Kingdom and the U.S. – were selected out of the 152 finalist from around the world during the ceremony on August 24, 2021! See the full list and Click Here. More than 650 entries were received, and an elite global judging panel narrowed those entries down to the final ballot, which was voted on by members of the licensing industry at large.

One special award added this year was for the Pandemic Pivot, recognizing companies’ efforts to use licensing to react to the effects of the global pandemic. From among six companies on the ballot, Peanuts Worldwide took home that honor for its work in developing and making available for free in-home educational materials and lesson plans, among its other efforts special. Thank you to our event sponsors – Alifish, InSpirit Designs, ViacomCBS Consumer Products, and Wildbrain CPLG, who not only helped make this event possible, but 

In addition to honoring the work of the nominees and winners, the ceremony included the announcement that Kathy Ireland, CEO and Chief Designer at Kathy Ireland Worldwide; and Salvatore LaRocca, President, Global Partnerships of the National Basketball Association, as the newest inductees into the Licensing Hall of Fame; they’ll be formally feted at an event in late October.
