“The strong line-up of contenders in the licensed property categories is a true reflection of the dynamism of this ever evolving industry. The finalists fanfare an array of properties from right across the spectrum—newer entertainment properties which have really ‘hit the spot’ in the last year to true stalwart brands that have successfully wielded the power of their heritage,” commented Ian Hyder, owner, The Licensing Awards and The Licensing Source Book. “The addition of an award which recognises the gaming and new media properties further strengthens these accolades, while the new Best Film or TV property category celebrates the explosion of activity in this area.”
