The Signature Annual Awards 2018

BSL Video ButtonThe Signature Annual Awards are a cornerstone in our work to recognise people who are going above and beyond to improve access for deaf people. For the past nine years, our prestigious awards have been awarded to business leaders, community groups, volunteers, and teachers to name a few.

This year we celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Signature Annual Awards. This year, the awards aren’t just about what you’ve achieved so far, but how you are leading, educating and inspiring to create a brighter future for others. If you know a special person who fits the bill, we want to know about them!

Nominations are now open and will close at 5pm on Monday 30th July. Tell us about the people you know who aren’t just doing incredible work everyday, but inspiring a brighter future for their community.

Our guests will be invited to a wonderful awards evening at the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art on the stunning Newcastle-Gateshead Quayside on Friday 9th November 2018.
