International Expo Consults LLC (IEC) part of Falak Holding, announced that the much awaited ‘Wall of Fame’ competition will once again be a destination for some interesting creative masterpieces during the SGI Dubai 2019 show.  SGI Dubai 2019 is the largest printing, signage and imaging exhibition in the Middle East, bringing together key stakeholders of the industry on a single platform. Participants in the 3rd edition of the ‘Wall of Fame’ competition will be showcasing their most creative pieces of artwork or printing that they have worked on during the 2018 calendar year.

Sharif Rahman, CEO, IEC commented, “The past two years we have seen enthusiastic exhibitors come up and try and outdo each other for the coveted top spot on wall of fame. It just makes sense for us to bring back the most awaited event of the SGI show. Apart from the friendly competition that this initiative provides, it also doubles up as an exhibition of the final output from the various machines on display at the event”.

Previous winners of the Wall of Fame include Egygrafx and Blue Rhine in 2017 and 2018 shows respectively.

Artwork submission and other specifications: This opportunity is open to all the exhibitors participating in SGI Dubai 2019. The size of the canvas should be 4ft by 3ft and should be the best creative that one can showcase. A brief explanation of the work needs to be mentioned at the bottom of the artwork. The wooden/metal panel (not weighing more than 8-10 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.

Judging the entries: The winners of the ‘Wall of Fame’ will be decided by an independent panel of judges, reactions from SGI Dubai’s social media pages and with the help of the visitors attending the show. All entries to the competition would have to be developed in between January and December 2018, and all exhibitors at the show are urged to participate. Participants need to send in the images by December 1st, 2018 via email to enter the SGI Dubai social media platforms. The exhibitors should install the final creative on the ‘Wall of fame’ during the previous night of the show.
