DSE Announces Apex Award Finalists For Digital Signage Projects

apex-obscura

Digital Signage Expo has announced the finalists for its annual Apex Awards, which recognize and celebrate  great projects and deployments in the sector.

The finalists were selected by an independent panel of six industry journalists (all good people, but as I have told DSE many times, people who do this stuff – not write about it – should be the judges). And that’s enough about that.

The 30 chosen were from a stack of 90 or so entries in 10 categories. The Gold, Silver and Bronze Apex Awards will be presented in each category at an awards banquet on for the opening night of the DSE 2013 trade show, on Wednesday, February 27th, from 7-9 pm at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.

I’m familiar with many but certainly not all these projects. Arsenal Media is once again up for awards in several categories (five if you lump in office-mates Float 4, and the content awards are still to come), and good to see Vince Mitchell from Pacific Digital (poor man suffers in relative obscurity in Honolulu) get a nod.

Congratulations to all the nominees.
