Kidz Entertainment has been named Licensing Agent of 2008 at Kidscreen's second 'best of the year' awards.
The Copenhagen-based company integrated the operations of Eastern European agency EEMC and moved into 15 territories in the region in 2008, including opening an office in the Ukraine and expanding in Russia.
The firm also created new posts internally and secured new clients - including Miffy and In The Night Garden - during the year.
"It's great to be recognised for outstanding work at the end of an important year for us," said Morten Geschwendtner, chairman of Kidz Entertainment (pictured). "We are constantly trying to raise the bar in terms of our relationships at retail and what we deliver for our clients and this award salutes those aims.
"I'd like to dedicate the award to the significant effort and achievements of the Kidz Entertainment/EEMC teams, and to the strong brands in our portfolio that come from licensors we love working with."
