This year has been another bumper one for the UK licensing industry - with NPD's License Tracker reporting in October that it was worth £2.4 billion in the 12 months to June 2007.

And 2008 is already shaping up to be just as good - but what do you think will be some of the best performing licences across the year?

Will newcomers such as BBC's In The Night Garden, Cartoon Network's Ben 10 and Numberjacks from Granada continue to grow and dominate their relevant sectors?

Or will new, revamped brands like Chorion's The Mr Men Show make an impact? Paddington, Power Rangers and Sonic the Hedgehog are all celebrating milestone anniversaries, too.

Will art and design-based brands push even further into the mainstream, like the Science Museum has done in 2007?

And will summer 2008 see yet another round of big event movies take over retail, especially with Euro 2008 now a distant memory for England?

We want to hear what you think.
