ASGA and FESPA Australia announced the category winners of the HP Awards For Excellence at a live face to face gala dinner held at Victoria Park in Brisbane on 1st October. For those that couldn’t attend due to travel restrictions, had the option to watch the Awards presentation ‘live’ via Zoom while enjoying a bottle of wine and a gourmet platter – all delivered straight to their door to be enjoyed in the comfort of their lounge room.

“After all the postponements and changes over the last 18 months, it truly was a celebration of excellence in the sign, display and graphics industry”, said Nigel Davies, president FESPA Australia.

“I’d like to acknowledge the effort made by anyone who contributed a submission for consideration, to congratulate those who became worthy finalists, and to celebrate those deemed to ultimately be category winners. Our winners deserve the recognition for their excellence, along with the sponsors for their continued support. The winners have shown an amazing amount of endurance during challenging times and I truly believe that each year the quality of submissions get better and better.”

Julie Rochester, ASGA president, said “The last 18 months has thrown up immense challenges for the industry, but, resourceful as ever, our sector has responded creatively and with optimism. We’ve learned how to replace and to complement the traditional face-to-face experience by including hybrid and virtual alternatives.”

Setting the tone for the night, Steven Bradbury (above, right) showed how he has transitioned from being an expert speed skater to an expert speaker and MC. “If the pandemic has taught us anything, it is to remind us of the need to be flexible, innovative and responsive and we have all demonstrated these values tonight,” said Bradbury.

“I’d like to personally thank all the sponsors of the Awards, without the support of HP, 3M, Amari Visual Solutions, Avery Dennison, Epson, Euro Poles, Graphic Art Mart, Visual Connections, Ball & Doggett, Orafol, SMIB and Trotec this night may not have been possible,” Davies said. “I’d particularly like to thank those that have stuck with us through postponements and changes.”

Rochester agreed. “The feedback we have received throughout this journey has been just wonderful. I’d also like to thank everyone who participated and showed support for each other. It makes me proud to be part of this amazing community.”

This year’s People’s Choice Award proved popular once again, with the highest number of Facebook ‘likes’ recorded across all categories. What's That Guvnor? by Liberty Signs (Full Vehicle Wraps) was the stand-out winner, receiving more than half the total votes. It’s the second People’s Choice Award for Liberty Signs, having won the People’s Choice Award in 2018.
