CPLG walked away with a host of honours at this year's Home Awards ceremony, held last week during the 20th Century Fox Consumer Products International Agent Summit in Los Angeles.

The annual awards are presented by FCP in recognition of outstanding achievements by its agents worldwide.

This year saw teams from CPLG's network of offices across the globe take home seven awards from a total of 15 available.

Agent of the Year was awarded to CPLG France, which also picked up Product of the Year for Gipsy/Alvin & The Chipmunks plush range (which also scooped a Bronze award in Licensee of the Year) and a Silver accolade for Kraft/The Simpsons snacks in Promotion of the Year.

CPLG Spain won a Silver for Arluy/The Simpsons food range in Licensee of the Year, also scooping Gold in Promotion of the Year for Nesquik Nestle/Rio.

CPLG Benelux, meanwhile, won Silver in Retail Programme of the Year for the Coolcat/Glee in-store retail push.

"To win what amounted to nearly half of all the awards on offer at the Homeys is a magnificent achievement," said Steve Manners, EVP and director of entertainment at CPLG. "The relationship between Fox and CPLG is a very strong one and all our teams across continental Europe work incredibly hard to deliver outstanding results for these major brands, so to have our efforts recognised in this way is a fantastic honour and testament to the drive and creative ability of all our staff."

Jennifer Buchanan, VP of European licensing at FCP EMEA, added: "CPLG are a truly collaborative agent partner and the awards are well deserved."
