- OiDroids, presented by Jonathan Klemenz: Pop-out and build collecible cardboard robot toys, aimed at the pocket money sector, each with quirky details and full of personality.
- "Victoria Spunge," presented by Stuart Simpson: An animation series in development about the sweet, smart Victoria Spunge and her visits to her Grandpa, the eccentric inventor, Albert Custard.
- Wussywat, presented by Simon Quinn and Simon Rolph: "Wussywat the Clumsy Cat" is a 2D animation series for 3- to 5-year-olds currently airing on CBeebies, about a curious and clumsy cat, discovering the world with his other animal friends.
“Nearly 40 entries for 2015 License This! provided an exciting session for the judges with much debate about the many different approaches taken by candidates,” Kelvyn Gardner, managing director, LIMA U.K. and judging panel chair. “There was a lot of very good material, so no easy task to whittle the entries down to four. Our four finalists each has a very good story to tell; we look forward to their pitches at BLE and encourage everyone to come along for what should be a very lively final.”
Other judges on the panel included Charlie Donaldson, joint managing director, Rocket Licensing; Tom Gunn, international brand director EMEA, MTV Networks, and Wendy Munt, managing director, Be Inspired Consulting.
The four finalists will now compete for a chance to win a grand prize valued at over £6,000.
