Outdoor digital sign manufacturer sponsors first annual awards program

Danville, IL – Watchfire Signs, a manufacturer of outdoor digital signs, is seeking submissions for their first annual Watchfire LED Sign Awards program.

With no entry fee, Watchfire will begin accepting submissions for the Watchfire LED Sign Awards on January 26, 2015. All entries must be submitted by March 6, 2015 at midnight. Watchfire has undertaken this program to recognize Watchfire dealer partners who demonstrate the best use of the digital component on an on-premise digital sign. Each entry will be scored on its ability to showcase the unique capabilities of LED message boards, including excellence in sign design and construction and integration or utilization of the digital component. “Unlike most sign contests that reward excellence in all forms of advertising, we want to strictly focus on highlighting the digital components of signage and its unique capabilities” said Darrin Friskney, Watchfire’s Vice President of Marketing. “This is an opportunity for our dealer partners to showcase their greatest work and be recognized for it.” Sign companies will have a chance to not only win recognition, but also a thousand bucks. All entries should include an image of the installed sign with a message display on the LED portion of the sign and must be submitted as a digital file to the secure website: Additional information, contest rules and regulations can be found online at About Watchfire Headquartered in Danville, Watchfire has manufactured outdoor electric signs since 1932 — then known as Time-O-Matic — and LED signs since 1996. The company has created more than 50,000 Watchfire LED signs for convenience stores, gas stations, retail, banks, schools, places of worship and other locations worldwide and has more digital billboard customers than any other manufacturer.
