Not only do the LIMA Awards showcase the best of licensing every year, they also serve as a historical record, offering a brief glimpse of the brands and innovations that have shaped the industry over the last three decades.

With hundreds of entries every year, the competition to make it on the ballot, much less win, is fierce. Those who do win can savor the knowledge that not only will they be celebrated by their peers in the present, their work will also live on in this annal of licensing innovation and achievement.
