The DIGI Awards is the only industry award program that recognizes the outstanding integrators, content providers and new product manufacturers for digital signage. In both my capacity as Chair of the Judges Committee of the DIGI Awards, and as Executive Editor of Digital Signage magazine, I’ve seen this industry grow exponentially in the past decade. Last year’s DIGI entries reflected that growth, with a record number of entries, and this year will be even better.

The complete list of categories is:
