License! Global Magazine's 4th Annual Licensing Challenge, held in conjunction with MIPCOM Jr., was in fact won by two properties, Breakthrough Animation's MY BIG BIG FRIEND and Alphanim's award-winning HAIRY SCARY (52x13 or 26x26). In a story published Monday, AWN identified the former show as the winner, but failed to include co-winner HAIRY SCARY. The complete results were reported in LICENSE! GLOBAL WEEKLY E-NEWS.
The live pitching presentation was moderated by global editorial director Tony Lisanti, who observed that this was the first time that there had been two winners.
The other finalists included KATIE'S PICTURE SHOW (New Moon Television (UK)), SPORTLETS (Workout Factory BV (Netherlands)), and UKI from BMC Publishing/ARS Entertainment (Belgium).
