Last year's winner
The judges were thoroughly impressed with JD Gyms' project, which won a gold prize. They praised the scale of the project, the use of traditional neon, and the attention to detail that was put into achieving the desired look. They were particularly impressed with how the project perfectly captured the brief and made the gym look serious and inviting.
What we're looking for

Additionally structural techniques, methodology and manufacturing elements are also considered.
Photos of entries in this category are required of the signage in both night and day, lit and unlit, states. Consideration will be given for originality, the scale, reflection, refraction, movement or change and the technical and aesthetic design.
Judging will be based on, but not limited to, the following guidelines:
