Entries for the 2012 DSA Industry Excellence Awards (http://www.digitalscreenmedia.org/dsa-awards-entry-information) will be open until Feb. 10. These awards recognize the best digital signage, interactive kiosk and mobile technology deployments across all market segments. Entries are also being accepted for Industry Deployer of the Year (individual) and Network Operator of the Year (company).
The Digital Screenmedia Association (DSA) is now accepting entries for the DSA Industry Excellence Awards, honoring the best self-service, digital signage and mobile technology deployments across all vertical market segments.
Companies may enter digital signage, self-service kiosk and/or mobile technology projects in one or more of the following categories:
- Digital Out-of-Home Campaign
- Financial Services
- Restaurant/Food Service
- Other (industry not listed above)
Winners will be selected from each category and judges will select one project from among the entries which best demonstrates the integration of two or more technologies (digital signage, kiosks and/or mobile) for a Screenmedia Integration Award.
DSA welcomes entries from all interested companies – members and non-members alike. The cost to enter is $195 per entry. All entries will require the submission of a video demonstration of the product in use. A portion of the project must have launched between January 1, 2011 and February 1, 2012 to be eligible.
Other awards include:
- The Industry Deployer of the Year Award, given to an individual person from an end-user organization (retail, government, healthcare, casino, hotel, etc.). This award will focus on the strategic role this person has played in driving his or her organization’s innovative screen media deployment.
- The Network Operator of the Year Award, given to an organization that operates networks of digital signs or kiosks, often for the purpose of selling advertising. This award will focus on the company’s success in creating a sustainable network delivering high quality, relevant content that reaches the intended audience.
There is no fee required for Industry Deployer of the Year or Network Operator of the Year submissions. The deadline to enter is Feb. 10, 2012.
“Last year was our first year to conduct the awards and we were very pleased with the quantity and quality of the entries,” said David Drain, DSA executive director. “We expect a greater number of entries and a higher level of competition this year.”
The DSA Industry Excellence Awards winners will be announced at the DSA Pre-Show Party, held Mar. 27, the evening before Customer Engagement Technology World opens in San Francisco.
