Visix Inc., Atlanta-based digital signage software provider, is now accepting entries for its 2011 Expression Awards.
The Expression Awards are part of Visix’s strategy to bring its software users together, to spotlight creative abilities, and to recognize Visix customers for their contributions in the field of visual communications. The company launched the annual contest in 2008 to recognize the best visual content from end-users of its AxisTV digital signage software application.
Awards will be given in the following categories: Best Still Design, Best Motion Design, and Best Screen Design.
“We’ve seen both the quality of entries and the number of participants grow each year,” says Deborah DeWitt, Visix marketing communications manager. “For 2011, we’re offering better prizes, have reduced the number of categories, and have made the entry process simpler. We’ve also tried to better align the entry period with school calendars for our higher education customers.
“Our judges will concentrate on content designs that include calls to action and/or interactivity. We feel it’s essential to not just communicate information, but to prompt audiences to take the next step. We hope these awards not only recognize and reward our customers’ work, but also inspire other clients to higher achievement in digital signage design.”
Deadline for entries is April 29/11. Three finalists will be selected in each category and winners will be announced June 7. Expression Award winners will receive:
- an Apple iPad with Wi-Fi – 16GB;
- a mounted, personalized Expression Award;
- recognition in Visix’s e-newsletter, on its website and a press release announcing winners;
- featured publication of the winning entry on the Visix User Forum;
- use of the official 2011 Expression Award winner logo.
Entry forms, judging criteria, and more detailed information about the awards are available at www.visix.com/expressionawards.html.
