The entry deadline for the Licensing Awards 2020 has been extended an extra week with the new date being Friday, Aug. 14.
In addition, more than 200 retailers have been lined up to take part in the judging for the product categories. The judging this year is being held online. Buyers from retailers as diverse as grocers, fast fashion specialists and toy chains through to ecommerce giants, department stores and value specialists have all pledged their support.
Some of the retailers taking part in the judging include:
- The Entertainer
- The Works
- George @ Asda
“We want to make sure that the industry gets the chance to be recognized for its efforts and achievements across product, property, retail, marketing and more,” says Ian Hyder, joint managing director, Max Publishing, which owns and organizes The Licensing Awards. “To do this, we felt it was fair to extend the deadline by another week from Aug. 7 to Aug. 14, giving the chance for those coming back to work from furlough across retail, licensees and licensors the best chance to enter.
