Enter the Product of the Year now!
With this year’s British Sign Awards set to reach its conclusion on 9th November with a gala luncheon and presentation ceremony at the Athena conference and banqueting venue in Leicester’s cultural quarter, the hunt is now on for the Product of the Year.
Accordingly, entries are invited from industry manufacturers and suppliers who have introduced a new product to the UK visual communications sector since August 2016 and believe it is worthy of a wider airing. Previous winners have included Nationwide Platform’s special safety harness for use when working at height, Nova Aluminium’s NovaSkin sign system and Zeta Lighting’s solar signage kit, but this year, the winner could just as easily be an item of hardware, a software package, a material, or indeed, something completely different and novel.
David Catanach, Director of the British Sign & Graphics Association, explained the judging criteria set for the award. He said: “This award, which is sponsored by SDonline, will be judged by the BSGA’s signmaker members, who will be looking for something which has made their life easier, and/or which has helped them to add extra value to their output.
“It provides companies with an excellent chance to showcase their products and to receive the recognition that they deserve, while the winner will enjoy a remarkable marketing coup – we are expecting a bumper number of entries!”
Companies can enter their own products, but nominations from sign and print companies will also be accepted and, in addition, a panel of industry experts will also nominate their favourites too, but don’t leave it to chance – complete your entry this weekend!
The awards are open to all and are free to enter – simply download and complete the entry form on the Awards’ website at: http://britishsignawards.org/how-to-enter/
