Nickelodeon Slime, JoJo Siwa, 'PAW Patrol' and 'Peppa Pig' Receive Nominations in 2018 International Licensing Awards

The International Licensing Industry Merchandisers’ Association (LIMA) has announced this year’s crop of nominees for the International Licensing Awards, and Nickelodeon is leading the 2018 ballot across the board with a total of seven nominations! Additionally, the hit preschool series Peppa Pig, which airs on Nick Jr. UK and Nick Jr. USA, has also received a nomination in the prestigious awards, honoring the best in licensing!


Whittled down from a record 700 submissions, a total of 132 nominees from 16 countries have been recognized in categories including licensing, retail, promotions and consumer products, and will vie for the industry’s most prestigious and globally-recognized honor. A record 42% of this year’s nominees originate from outside the U.S. – up from 25 percent from last year – demonstrating the increasing international reach of the awards program.

Voting will be open to all LIMA member companies in April. Winners will be announced at the LIMA Awards Ceremony on Tuesday, May 22, during Licensing Expo in Las Vegas.

Below is a list of the nominations for the 2018 International Licensing Awards, featuring the awards Nickelodeon has been nominated for.
