HOW TO ENTER

Your company DOES NOT have to be a Licensing International member to enter.
 
Submit one online entry form for each category you wish to enter. You MUST use this online submission portal. All entries must be submitted in English.

Review ALL categories here before choosing which ones to enter. Licensing International reserves the right to re-categorize submissions and to disqualify submissions that don’t follow the criteria. Coordinate with your business partners on entries to avoid duplication, which will split your votes.
 
Early-bird pricing for members is $100 per submission and $170 per submission for non-members. This pricing will end Friday, January 26, 2024 at 11:59pm EST and will then increase to $150 per submission for members and $220 for non-members.

The following are eligible for entry
  • Licensors
  • Manufacturers / Licensees 
  • Licensing Agents
  • Retailers
  • Paid-for Promotions that used licensed properties and/or licensed products (Promotions that have not carried a fee or royalty, like theatrical movie promotions primarily for marketing support, are NOT eligible)
  • Locations or events that used licensed properties

 

The brand, product, or collaboration must have bona fide retail distribution between January 2023 and January 2024. 

 

In your submission, describe what was original or innovative about the brand, product, or promotion. How was it received in the marketplace in terms of placement, sell-through, or achievement of other goals? The inclusion of retail sales dollars and number of doors is very helpful to the global panel of judges when considering your entry.

 

Provide up to FIVE high-res images per entry in the following formats: PNG, JPEG, TIFF, or EPS. Horizontal images are preferred. If your entry appears on the ballot, Licensing International may use one or more of these images during Finalists Week and/or the Awards Ceremony. Your submission WILL NOT be considered without at least one image.

 

You can also include a video link. The decision to include any video links with the ballot is at the sole discretion of Licensing International.

 
The deadline for submissions is 11:59PM on FEBRUARY 9, 2024. Entries received after this date will not be eligible for consideration. You can make edits to your entry until submissions close on February 9, 2024.
