BRITISH SIGN AWARDS 2017
The British Sign Awards were introduced by the BSGA in 2014 to recognise the outstanding skills of British sign makers and have grown since their inception to become one of the most eagerly anticipated events on the sign industry calendar.
The aim in launching the awards was to demonstrate that the UK sign industry is world class and to provide signmakers with a high profile showcase for their best work.
Signmaking as an industry utilises creativity and craft skills alongside advanced technology and materials , the latest lighting techniques as well as precision engineering, heavy engineering and construction engineering. The awards are structured to reflect the diverse nature of the work of signmakers with no less than 15 award categories open for entry (see below).
The 2017 Awards are now open for entries with a closing date for receipt of entries of Friday, September 8th and the BSGA is hoping that this year’s entries will top everything that has gone before.
Entry to the awards is free and is open to all UK-based signmakers.
Judging will be by an independent panel of industry experts and the results will be unveiled on Thursday, November 9th at the gala awards celebration which this year will be held at the Athena Events Centre in the heart of Leicester’s cultural quarter.
Why enter the British Sign Awards
Winning an award or being commended by the judging panel can have a dramatic impact on any business – that’s why virtually every industrial and commercial sector in the country has its own awards scheme. It’s the best marketing tool available – what can be better than being able to tell both your current customers and potential future customers that you have been judged by your industry peers to be the best. Nothing really compares. Win and you will get a trophy to display in your reception area, but more importantly you can use the Awards logo on all your marketing and business collateral. It is the ultimate proof that your business is out in front of your competitors.
Winning can also have a major effect of business performance. It’s a great boost for the staff who work all year round to deliver your products to customers and see their efforts rewarded and recognised.
Presentation of Awards
The awards presentation event will take place during the daytime, starting with a red carpet welcome for guests, followed by lunch and then the presentation of the awards. A daytime rather than an evening event and the central location were selected by the BSGA to make the awards as accessible as possible for everyone involved in the industry.
Full details about the award categories, how to enter, and the awards event can be found on the special awards website at www.britishsignawards.org. Information on sponsorship can also be found on the website.
