Nominate Digital Signage Projects for DSE’s 2016 Apex Awards

Awards honor excellent digital signage installation and content creation, presented in the same category for the first time.

Today Digital Signage Expo (DSE) posed two questions to integrators, designers, technology providers and end users alike.

“What good is a digital sign without content?”

“What good is great content without anywhere to display it?”

Opening the call for entries into its 13th annual digital signage Apex Awards, DSE recognizes that digital signage installations and the content they display go hand-in-hand. This year for the first time, the Installation Awards and the Content Awards will be presented in one single category.

Designed to recognize achievement in the installation of digital displays, interactive technology and the creation of compelling viewer content, the DSE Apex Awards have honored hundreds of companies for their innovation throughout the last 12 years. Check out last year’s winners here.

“The DSE Apex Awards have been nurturing creativity and innovation in our industry for over a decade and as the sector has evolved we have taken a cue from real life to combine our awards for great installations and amazing content,” says Chris Brennaman, DSE’s conference manager.

The 2016 awards program will be held Wednesday evening, March 16 from 5-7 p.m. during DSE’s free networking reception at the Las Vegas Convention Center during its annual Expo.

The awards will be presented to three outstanding entries in gold, silver and bronze, in a total of nine categories:

  • Arts, Entertainment & Recreation
  • Business & Government Services
  • Education & Healthcare
  • Event Venues & Hospitality
  • Food & Beverage
  • Immersive Environments
  • Public Spaces
  • Retail
  • Transportation

Two overarching winners will receive the Apex Installation of the Year and Apex Content of the Year awards.

To qualify, nominees must have a new or current digital signage or interactive technology program installed between November 1, 2014, and October 31, 2015. Updated content for existing digital signage installations that began running during the same time period will also qualify. The deadline to submit entries is November 6, 2015.

The nominating companies can be the venues themselves, the technology providers that provided the installation hardware and software, the architects and design firms who conceived the project, as well as the system integrators who did the installation. A single company is permitted to submit multiple nominations for separate projects.
