This opportunity is open to all the exhibitors participating in SGI Dubai 2017. The size of the canvas should be 4ft by 3ft and should be the best creative. A brief explanation of the work needs to be mentioned at the bottom of the artwork. The wooden/metal panel (not weighing more than 8 kilograms) should have a provision at the back of the frame to hang the artwork on the ‘Wall of Fame’. The artwork shouldn’t have a glass frame as there is a tendency that it might break in transit.
The winners of the ‘Wall of Fame’ will be chosen by an independent panel of judges, SGI’s social media platforms and trade visitors at the show. Exhibitors can showcase their best campaign, artwork that was developed in 2016 from January to December 2016, this could be anything to do within the printing and signage industry. SGI participants can also send in the image of the art work by December 15th via email and install the final creative on the wall during the previous night of the show.
