Signature Annual Awards 2018


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

This year they 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.

Tickets are now on sale, the 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.
