WildBrain CPLG, one of the world’s leading entertainment, sport and brand licensing agencies, is pleased to announce it took home the top award of “Agency of the Year” at the 2020 International Licensing Awards, which were held in a virtual ceremony on 13 August in front an audience of close to 1,000 licensing and retail executives.

Maarten Weck, executive vice president and managing director at WildBrain CPLG, said: “We are incredibly honoured to receive this award as voted by our peers across the industry. I would like to congratulate our team, who have worked very hard over the last year to embody a collaborative and creative spirit, both within our company and for our many wonderful clients, and without whom we would not be able to shine. We are thrilled at this recognition of our work and look forward to providing the same high level of service and performance to licensors over the years ahead, and to keep using our energy to propel ourselves to even greater heights.”  

The 2020 International Licensing Awards winners unveiled at yesterday’s ceremony were selected from among more than 600 entries received from around the world, which was narrowed down to a field of 175 nominees and eventually just 23 winners, with WildBrain CPLG taking the top agency honour.
