Brand & Lifestyle Licensing Awards 2022: The finalists

The finalists in the Product, Property and Retail categories for the Brand & Lifestyle Licensing Awards 2022 have officially been unveiled.

The B&LLAs attracted a strong number of entries, from companies large and small. Each and every entry was judged by a panel that comprised of retail buyers from right across the spectrum, including Selfridges, TJ Morris, The Entertainer, The Very Group, Asda, Liberty London, TruffleShuffle, Character.com, Matalan, Tesco, Waterstones, John Lewis, BM Stores, Morrisons and Moonpig among others.

“Our judges were certainly faced with a tricky task when it came to choosing this year’s finalists; the quality of entries was superb and we have ended up with an absolutely stellar shortlist,” commented Ian Hyder, ceo of Max Publishing, which owns and organises the B&LLAs. “The brand and lifestyle licensing industry is going from strength to strength and we cannot wait to celebrate with everyone on the 27th April.”

The winners will be crowned in a glittering afternoon ceremony on Wednesday 27th April at the Hilton Park Lane, London. For tickets, visit:  https://www.max-subscriptions.net/tickets/.
