Digital Signage Expo® (DSE), the world’s largest International Tradeshow and Conference dedicated to digital signage, interactive technology, and digital out-of-home networks (DOOH), is now accepting nominations for its Ninth Annual Content Awards. Submissions deadline is Thursday September 1, 2011. Submission forms are available HERE.
Because of the earlier entry deadline for the 2012 Content Awards, the eligibility period covers original content displayed between September 1, 2010, and September 1, 2011.
Richard Lebovitz, editorial director of Exponation, LLC, who oversees the Awards judging, said, “Based on advice from our independent panel of judges, we incorporated several changes to simplify the nomination process while continuing to encourage innovation in digital signage content creation.”
“The major change we made was to replace the former entry categories, based on the type of content, with new categories, based on the venue,” continued Lebovitz. “The judges felt that our former approach pigeon-holed entries into categories that often weren’t a good fit.
“The change to venues, which mirror those categories established for the DSE Apex Awards, means the focus shifts more from the type of content to the viewer’s experience with that content, whether it’s passive, interactive, live video or some other format. This new approach will allow the panel to judge retail to retail, restaurant to restaurant and so forth.”
Also New For 2012:
* Required information simplified to streamline entry process and judging.
* Entry fee for 2012 is $125/entry
* Third Annual Awards Dinner moves to Caesars Palace, Wednesday, March 7 from 7:00-9:00pm.
