What’s in an award? Well, quite a lot actually. Awards are a mark of those who strive to succeed. Awards acknowledge success – plus they recognise many other qualities such as ability, struggle, effort and, above all, excellence. And whilst a shiny trophy is important, in most cases the kudos comes from public recognition. Truth be told, signage awards are no different. Firstly they showcase excellence in design. Secondly, the awards highlight different production techniques and approaches. And thirdly, our industry benefits by having a cohesive, standardised level of quality. All great news for our customers!
Every 2 years the peak industry body of the sign industry in Australia, ASGA (Australian Sign & Graphics Association), holds rewards for outstanding signage. Signs & Lines proudly enters submissions of our high quality work. The event is designed to encourage, promote and reward skills in our craft of sign making. It is also designed to affirm excellence in technology and product.
2020 ASGA / FESPA Australia HP Awards for Excellence
In 2020 the ASGA awards received over 387 entries across the 21 categories which cover the full range of signage types. Awards for originality and young ‘rising stars’ of the industry are also included. We submitted 24 entries in 9 categories. Entries were in both static and digital signage categories, showcasing our quality projects both large and small.
Covid-19 definitely changed the judging process this year. Electronic entries were judged remotely by independent ‘signy’s’ from around the country. In addition, our team was selected to judge one of the major categories.
Covid-19 has also delayed awards night by six months, now scheduled for 12th February 2021. The Awards ceremony is run alongside a one-day Conference. The event features key industry and business topics, along with sponsor table-top exhibitions. Most importantly, it is a meeting of minds in our industry.
Receiving an award is a high honour. We don’t know if we have been judged successfully yet! However, irrespective of the outcome, we know we always produce a quality output. So we are cautiously optimistic that we may add to our current awards bounty.
