Now in their fourth year under the auspices of the BSGA (British Sign and Graphics Association), the British Sign Awards have grown to become one of the major events in the sign industry calendar.
The awards were launched by the BSGA, the independent trade association that represents and fights for the interests of the UK industry, to shine a light on British Sign Makers and to provide a showcase for the ‘Best of British’.
It is the only event where the focus is entirely on signmakers and the work they do, and over the past three years, there have been some truly remarkable winners who have demonstrated that the skill and creativity of British sign businesses is world class.
The awards are open to all UK-based sign businesses (i.e. you do not have to be a member of the BSGA to enter) and, to ensure a level playing field for all, judging is by an independent panel of industry experts. They shortlist three entries in each category and the eventual winner of each award is unveiled at a gala presentation event.
This year there is a change to the norm in that the BSGA has joined forces with The Sign Design Society (SDS) to organise the Wayfinding Award. Wayfinding is the special interest of the SDS and, in addition to promoting the award, the SDS will convene an expert judging panel to draw up a shortlist of entrants and select the eventual winner.
Being selected to win an award by your peers in the industry is a real honour, but it actually means much more. Winning an award – or being highly commended by the judges – can bring real benefits to a business – it’s major morale booster for all the staff, it increases your profile within the industry and it provides and extra-special marketing tool that can help you win more business from existing customers and new business from new customers.
