Digital Signage Expo (DSE) has extended its nominations deadline for APEX Awards to allow additional time to participate. The new deadline is January 16, 2019 at 12 pm PT.
The APEX Awards will be presented to three outstanding entries – Gold, Silver and Bronze – in a total of 12 categories. Additionally, one entry will win the APEX Installation of the Year, and one entry will win the APEX Content of the Year. New in 2019 will be a third overall award, the Integrator of the Year, which will honor the company that had the most successful overall year with multiple project installations that achieved goals based on the criteria of challenge, creativity, ROI and ROO.
Categories include Corporate Environments, DOOH Campaigns, Educational Environments, Entertainment & Recreation, Experiential Design & Planning, Healthcare Environments, Hospitality, Public Spaces, Restaurants, Bars and Foodservices, Retail Environments, Transportation and Venues.
To qualify, nominees must have a new or current digital signage or interactive technology program installed between Nov. 1, 2017, and Oct. 31, 2018. Updated content for existing digital signage installations that began running during the same time period will also qualify. The NEW extended deadline to submit entries is 12:00 p.m. PT January 16, 2019. Additional information and entry forms are available here.
The nominating companies can be venues themselves, the technology providers that provided the installation hardware and software, the architects or the 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. The cost to enter the DSE APEX Awards is $195 USD.
