Recognising the best in British Signmaking
The British Sign Awards celebrate the outstanding achievements of UK-based sign businesses of every type and size. Judged by a panel of independent industry experts, the awards are designed to recognise the skills and creativity of British signmakers and provide tangible rewards to the very best.
Awards are presented in 12 categories covering every facet of signmaking with additional awards for the Young Signmaker of the Year and Product of the Year. Entry to the awards is free and open to all UK sign businesses.
Entry to this year’s British Sign Awards has been the biggest ever, with over 190 entries across all the categories.
ISA-UK and the Award organisers would like to thank everyone who took the time and trouble to enter the awards.
As is the custom, the names and identities of all entrants are redacted (i.e. erased) before the judges see the entries, so they judge the projects only, based solely on the information and images supplied.
The panel of judges has now met and the shortlist for each category has now been decided. The companies on the shortlist are as follows:
Apogee Design and Print
Goodwin and Goodwin
Graffiti Design International
Interplan Sign Systems
Sign of the Times
Signs Express – Central Lancs
Signs Express – Leeds
Signs Express – Warrington
If your company name is not included in the above list, you have not made it on to the this year’s judges shortlist. Once again, many thanks for participating. The awards will return in 2020 and we hope you will consider entering again.
About the British sign Awards
The British Sign Awards are designed to recognise and reward outstanding work completed by UK-based sign makers over the past year.
This year the Awards are being organised under the auspices of ISA-UK following the affiliation of the BSGA (British Sign and Graphics Association) with the USA-based International Sign Association (ISA).
Now in their seventh year, the awards have become a beacon for the best in British Signmaking, providing a unique showcase for the creative talent, technological skills, engineering abilities and craftsmanship that continue to make sign making in the UK the envy of the world.
“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.”
