The New LIMA Awards Website is Now LIVE!

LIMA announced the opening of nominations for the 2019 International Licensing Awards program that features a revamped online submission process, a broad judging panel drawn from around the world and a revised list of award categories. In its 33rd year, The LIMA International Licensing Awards have long defined high achievement in international licensing innovation and creativity.

“Celebrating licensing programs that generate revenue, extend reach, and increase relevance is crucial to driving the global growth of the industry,” said Maura Regan, President, LIMA. “These seemingly small changes to the awards program are designed to deliver significant impact – greater and more diverse participation to truly reflect the breadth and depth of the licensing community.”
Additionally, 2019 will introduce five new award categories, bringing the total to 24, including the Community Choice Award introduced last year. New to the 2019 awards are one for Best Collaboration, a Newcomer Award and three new retailer awards – Best Retailer for a Corporate Brand, Best Retailer for an Entertainment Brand and Best Retailer for Lifestyle, Fashion or Sports.
