Entries are already flooding in for the ASGA Currie Group Sign & Graphics Awards and, with early birds able to take their time preparing entries and avoid the stress of a last-minute scramble, organisers are hoping more will take a leaf out of their book.

“No matter what area of the industry you operate in, there’s a category for everyone in the Sign & Graphics Awards, providing us with a truly comprehensive and impressive showcase of what our industry is capable of achieving,” says ASGA Events Manager, Michael Punch.

He adds: “Whether you produce traditional or digital signage, fabricated or printed products, large projects or small jobs, we are keen to see your work and recognise your achievements.”

Indeed, the categories are comprehensive - as well as traditional hand painted or airbrushed work, there are categories for digital LED and LCD signs, illuminated LED and neon projects, directional and wayfinding signage, engraved, fabricated and sculptural projects, pylon and sky signs, and large-format digital print, including printed fabrics, textiles and garments.

In addition, there are separate categories recognising excellence in installations, retail signage packages, router outputs, and awards to recognise the all-important inputs to the process, including in-house design.

Awards galore, but enter correctly

Special awards are given for innovation and for projects that achieve superior sustainability, and the important area of new talent for our sector is recognised with a Training Innovation award, and a Young Star Award. Small businesses of five or fewer staff also have a category of their own.ASGA MickHarrold awards crMick Harrold at the 2022 awards

Mick Harrold, President of ASGA, is keen to spruik the benefits of entering the Awards, saying they are not only a great opportunity to showcase your accomplishments, but also to recognise and reward your staff, and promote your achievements to your clients.

“Purely by entering your best work in the Awards, you’re sending the message to clients that you have achieved a quality result for them, and perhaps most importantly, you are sending a message of appreciation and recognition to your team, for their efforts in achieving those high standards,” says Harrold.

“Should you be a finalist or winner, of course, your achievements will be invaluable in marketing your business – so if you have achieved some great work this year, now’s the time to get your entries submitted.”

To be eligible for the 2024 Awards, projects must be completed between Tuesday 8th March 2022 and Friday 31st May 2024, and must be received by 5pm on Friday 7th June 2024. Judging will take place later in the year, and the Awards will be presented at a gala dinner at Doltone House, Hyde Park, Sydney on Friday, 6th September, 2024.

Michael Punch advises: “To give yourself the best chance of winning, it's important to check the Awards Categories to make sure you are entering each job in the category to which it is most suited, and also to understand the criteria on which entries in that particular category will be judged."

“It's also a good idea to remind yourself of the Terms & Conditions so that you can ensure you meet those and avoid unnecessary disqualification. All the detail can be found online at signs.org.au.”
