“Our members’ signs are unique works of art and manufacture, as well as the most important marketing vehicles for businesses,” says Lori Anderson, ISA president and CEO. “The ability to design and expertly engineer signs, with all of their complexity and dimension, takes a very particular skill set that is specific to the on-premise sign industry.”

This year’s contest received a 106% increase in the number of votes submitted, with more than 35,000 votes recorded.
