Argos, The Entertainer and Character World are just some of the big names to have scooped accolades at this year’s Nickelodeon annual awards.

Last night Nickelodeon and Viacom Consumer Products held its annual UK Achievement Awards at London’s Ham Yard Hotel, celebrating the most successful promotional campaigns of the year.

Presented by Ron Johnson, EVP Consumer Products at Viacom International Media Networks and Marianne James, VP Consumer Products UK and Ireland and European Retail Sales and Marketing, Viacom International Media Networks, the event championed innovative product development, creative collaborations as well as licensee and retail support.

Eight awards were handed out during the evening showcase event to big names in the children’s entertainment and retail space including Argos, Tesco, The Entertainer and more.

“This has been one of the most successful years for the UK consumer products team and we wouldn’t be experiencing such impressive commercial and creative growth if not for our valued licensee and retail partners,” said James.
