The Licensing Awards 2012 is now officially open for entries.
As usual, categories cover all aspects of the UK licensing industry: Product, Retailer, Property, Marketing Communication and Special Awards.
The closing date for entering the licensed product awards categories is Wednesday May 23rd. These will be judged by an extensive panel of leading retail buyers from major High Street names.
Online and downloadable nomination forms for the Retailer Awards, Best Marketing Communications Award and Honorary Achievement Award are also now available from the official website.
For the second year running, the Licensed Property Awards can only be entered online. The deadline is June 22nd. These entries will be judged by a panel of retailers and licensees.
"The licensing industry is incredibly dynamic, vibrant and exciting," said Ian Hyder, director of The Licensing Awards and The Licensing Source Book. "The Licensing Awards 2012 are the ultimate accolades to reward excellence in retail execution, product innovation, property development and marketing expertise in the licensing field.
"The status of the awards is down to the sheer quality of the entries and the integrity of the judging process. The support and input from the industry - from licensors, licensees and retailers - means that The Licensing Awards really do reward the best of the best."
