British Sign Awards


Now in its third year, the  British Sign Awards is an annual awards scheme organised by the BSGA to recognise and reward excellence in the UK Sign Industry.

The scheme, which has been supported by 3M as the headline sponsor since its inception, is open to ALL sign businesses in the UK (membership of the BSGA is not necessary to enter), with judging  carried out by an independent panel of industry experts.  Entry to the awards is free-of-charge.

Awards are presented in a wide range of categories, reflecting the diverse skills and expertise of sign makers and some of the important markets the industry serves.  A special award for ‘The Small Signmaker of the Year’ is open to businesses employing from 1 to 5 people in recognition of the fact that the bulk of the industry in the UK is made up of small businesses.

Signs remain one of the most important marketing, branding and information tools available to both commercial enterprises and public sector organisations, and modern sign makers combine creativity and craftsmanship with advanced technology, engineering and construction expertise to meet the needs of their clients.

Awards are presented in 15 categories, each sponsored by a leading supplier to the industry, and winning entries are unveiled at the annual awards ceremony which has grown to become one of the biggest and most enjoyable networking events on the industry calendar.

In 2016, the awards ceremony will take place at East Midlands Conference Centre in Nottingham when broadcaster Bill Turnbull will host the proceedings.
