Digital Signage Expo's Awards Program Now Taking Entries For 2011
October 14, 2010 by Dave Haynes
If you are interested in submitting your work to Digital Signage Expo’s 7th Annual APEX & Content Awards you now have about four weeks to get it all together.
The submissions deadline is Friday, Nov. 12, 2010. Submission forms are available at: http://www.digitalsignageexpo.net/DigitalSignageExpo/AwardsDinner.aspx.
The APEX Awards categories include: Arts, Entertainment & Recreation; Business, Industry & Government; Education & Healthcare; Event Venues; Food & Beverage; Hospitality; Public Spaces, Retail, Transportation; and “New Concept,” the latter of which refers to highly innovative and future-forward digital signage applications.
Content nominees must have a new or current digital signage or interactive technology program installed or in roll-out phase between January 1, 2010 – December 31, 2010 and will be judged on: Creative Relevance, Production Quality and fulfillment of the Intended Mission. Independent industry panels will judge the APEX and Content Award entries submitted for all end-user categories.
Awards are handed out at a dinner on Feb. 23 at the Paris Hotel in Lost Wages from 7-9 pm. Tickets are $125 now and go up $25 about a month before the show.
So is it worth entering?
Yup. It’s good marketing material, and the DSE website does a really nice, thorough job of profiling the winners and why they won.
It also helps raise the bar when people get a chance to see good work, which is still on the rare side in this young sector.
