BLE is offering a new prize worth over £6,000 to the winner of this year’s License This competition.
The winner of the 2015 finals will receive a furnished nine square metre stand at BLE 2016, LIMA membership for one year and one ticket to the LIMA Licensing Essentials Course and Spring Fling Networking Party in May next year.
Celebrating its sixth year, the competition – the finals of which are held at the annual Brand Licensing Europe exhibition in London – offers new concepts the chance to break the licensing industry.
It is open to any new property with its roots in publishing, art and design, television or digital media. Entries are reviewed by a panel of experts, who shortlist four properties who will then pitch to the panel in a live final at BLE on October 15th.
“Since its launch in 2010, License This! has consistently received a high standard of entries year on year,” said Darren Brechin, BLE event director.
“It attracts high profile industry figures as judges who recognise the importance of fresh new properties, and provides a springboard for many who have gone on to achieve success as a result of entering.
“We are thrilled to have LIMA as the competition sponsor for 2015 which has allowed us to offer this fantastic enhanced prize for the winner, and I look forward to finding the ‘next big thing.’
Entry forms and competition rules can be found atwww.brandlicensing.eu. Deadline for entries is September 4th 2015. Brand Licensing Europe 2015 takes place from 13-15 October at London’s Olympia.
