Rewarding excellence

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.”
