Organised by the British Sign and Graphics Association (BSGA), the British Sign Awards are designed to celebrate the work of sign businesses in the UK, recognise achievement and reward excellence. The winners of a total of 15 awards, covering every aspect of sign making, will be unveiled at a gala lunch and presentation ceremony at the Athena Events Centre, Leicester, on Thursday 9th November 2017.

The Young Signmaker of the Year category rewards deserving sign makers under the age of 25, who are making an outstanding contribution to the UK sign industry through innovation, creativity or dedication. Business owners and managers within the sign industry were invited to nominate talented apprentices and employees for the award.
