2017 LIMA Licensing Awards

LIMA has finalized the ballot for the 2017 International Licensing Awards! We received a record 461 entries – 100 more than last year’s record! – making this year’s ballot one of the most competitive yet.

A total of 125 nominees from ten countries were named and will vie for the industry’s most prestigious and globally-recognized honor.  One quarter of the nominees, 31 companies, originate from outside the U.S., attesting to the expanding international reach of the awards program.

“The LIMA Licensing Awards program recognizes outstanding performance across a range of categories throughout the global licensing industry,” said LIMA President Charles Riotto. “The level of excellence exemplified in this year’s submissions was truly impressive and it is a testament to the impact LIMA members are having all around the globe.”

LIMA members may cast their votes online in April. Winners will be announced at the LIMA Awards Ceremony on Tuesday, May 23, during Licensing Expo in Las Vegas.
