Award Summaries And Deadlines

Adrian J Cotterill, Editor-in-Chief

As the deadline for the POPAI Digital Awards is tomorrow (May 21st) and there are a number of other awards coming up over the next 6 months we thought it would be useful to summarise them.

In date order…

  • Under the patronage of the Metro Group (one of the largest global retailing groups) and supported by sponsors; Echion, Deutsche Telekom, Nordland Systems and Scala it’s good to see the Second POPAI Digital Awards take place later this year. DEADLINE IS 21st MAY so get your skates on!
  • Now in its 4th year, VISCOM, the International Trade Fair for Visual Communication, has been promoting these European Digital Signage Best Practice Awards, since 2007. Final deadline is not until middle of August but don’t delay
  • BlueMaxx is a new industry award to promote application development around Bluetooth, NFC, SMS, MMS, QR Code or similar technologies that enable interactivity between digital signs and mobile, hand-held devices.

    Deadline for submissions is 14th September 2010. Winners will be announced at Customer Engagement Technology World (the event formerly known as both KioskCom and The Digital Signage Show) being held at the Jacob K Javits Convention Center, New York, NY November 10-11, 2010 and will receive industry-wide recognition, an award for display, and an honorarium.
