Licensing Awards Winners Celebrate

Licensing Awards Winners Celebrate

In a slightly different, but just as celebratory event, the licensing industry came together on Wednesday to virtually crown this year’s winners.

Organised by Max Publishing, the awards celebrate the best in class across the industry. With a high attendance, surprise guest speakers delighted the crowd, as David Walliams, Jim from Friday Night Dinner and the ‘voice of the balls’ Alan Dedicot shared their thoughts on screen.

John McInnerny was the winner of the 2020 Lifetime Achievement Award.
