Want to be featured on the Sign Name Project?

Welcome to the Sign Name/Name Sign submission form. You may have seen Deaf Connect’s video booth at the 2022 Brisbane and/or Sydney Deaf Festival. We are now thrilled to open online submissions to all members of our community to participate in our Sign Name/Name Sign Gallery webpage.

How to participate:

To participate, you must film two separate videos.

  1. VIDEO ONE – The first video will just be you signing your name. Please do not lead with an introduction or say anything else other than your sign name.
  2. VIDEO TWO – The second video is the explanation and story behind your sign name. Please browse the gallery to view examples if you are unsure about what to say.

All videos must be:

  • A maximum of 2 minutes in length
  • Filmed in landscape mode
  • Filmed on a plain background and have good lighting
  • Must have appropriate framing space e.g. not too tight so arms are cut off
  • Able to be downloaded by us via the link provided (please double check your share settings)

If you do not follow the criteria above, your submission will not be accepted.
