She further emphasized that the 2014 FLA Awards represents the cutting-edge innovation and dynamic creativity that positively impacted the marketplace during the calendar year 2014.
In conjunction with its 21st Anniversary, FLA is pleased to announce two brand new award categories, the Licensor of the year award and the most promising Licensor of the year award, which gives special recognition to unique and outstanding licensing practices of the respective Licensors.
- The Licensor of the Year Award will be presented to a local licensor that excelled locally as well as internationally with a brand/system/technology/etc. of Singapore origin that have not only being successfully recognized by the locals but also overseas.
- The most promising Licensor Award will be given to the individual/business entity with new ideas and products that are either licensable or newly licensed. This is a category that entrepreneurs ought to look out for, given the maturing entrepreneur landscape in Singapore.
For 2014, FLA is making some significant changes:
Each award category is to have at least 5 participants;
To facilitate enrolment of participants, participation fees are significantly lowered.
An award category with less than 5 entrants will be discarded for the year, unless the Awards Committee sees fit to maintain the category given the high quality of the entrants.
The FLA Awards Committee reserves the right to scrap an award if the entrants’ quality is judged too low.
Post-Awards, each entrant will benefit from a debrief session with a representative panel of the Judges, which will help the entrants improve some of their practices.
To encourage a non-winning entrant to participate again the following year, a discount is granted to any company competing twice in a row.
And finally, to keep the spirit of an award ceremony alive and exciting, the winning entries will only be disclosed during the Award Dinner, not the day before as we used to in the past for communication purpose.
