The 2019 Signs of the Times Signshop Competition is now open and accepting entries!
For the past several years, we have conducted our annual International Sign Contest in the winter with winners published in a spring-month issue. This year, we have changed the contest’s name, categories and dates. The 2019 Signshop Competition will be published in our September issue. Entries are being accepted as of May 1 and the deadline for submissions is July 1.
In addition, we have created three “divisions” for signshops based on their number of employees. Small shops (1-9 employees) will compete against each other, as will medium shops (10-24 employees) and large shops (25 or more). Within each division, we offer four categories of signs: best original signshop design and fabrication, both electric and non-electric; and best client design/shop fabrication, both electric and non-electric. So, any shop, regardless of its size, will be able to enter up to three projects each to these four different categories.
The cost to enter the competition is the same it has been for many years: $10 per project entered, up to a maximum of $75 for 8-12 entries.
Entrants must be sign companies. Design firms must enter through their sign fabricating partners. Eligible projects must have been completed between May 2018-June 2019. Projects previously covered by Signs of the Times are ineligible.
For questions or concerns, please email Managing Editor [email protected].Advertisement
