“Our aim in organising the awards is to highlight the quality, creativity and diverse skills of sign makers in this country and to reward the very best work of the past year.”
An award for everyoneThe British Sign Awards aim to recognise achievement in every sector of the increasingly diverse sign industry. This year a total of 15 Awards will be presented, covering everything from traditional crafts skills to the production of giant signs that combine creative design with heavy engineering and construction skills. New and developing technologies are recognized in The Décor Award, Large Format Award and the Vehicle Graphics Awards while the Innovation Award will go to a business that has demonstrated unique solution-solving skills. There are also special awards for the Small Sign Business of the Year and the Young Signmaker of the Year.
Why enter the awards
Entering an award and winning or even making the shortlist is good for business! It’s a great addition to your marketing toolbox, providing great PR and helping to improve increase awareness of your business and your capabilities; it’s a great sales tool, acting as a third party endorsement of your business, giving it a seal of approval from your peers and sending out positive signals to your customers; and finally, an award is a great employee motivator – it recognises their skill and hard work and gives them a reason to be proud of the place they work.
