NZ Sign and Display Awards of Excellence
The flagship event for the NZSDA is the annual NZ Sign and Display Awards. This prestigious national event recognizes and acknowledges outstanding design and craftsmanship across a broad range of sign-making methods and technologies. Every year it receives hundreds of online entries from all over New Zealand.
To Acknowledge Excellence is the primary purpose of the NZ Sign and Display Awards. This maxim not only constitutes part of the awards programme logo but also provides the standard by which all entries are judged. This ensures that the overall level of entries is high and that competition for the gold, silver, and bronze medals is fierce. Sponsored by many of New Zealand’s leading sign and graphics suppliers, the annual awards dinner and prize-giving are held in various locations throughout New Zealand, reinforcing the event’s national status.
To enter the NZ Sign and Display Awards please go to our official Awards website at www.nzsda.net.nz. Entries must be received on or before 5pm 16th May 2022.
