When it comes to finding a way to celebrate the achievements of those individuals or organisations deserving of real credit, presenting them with the very best exclusive trophies is unquestionably one of the most memorable ways to do it. And fortunately, it doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive to invest in the most exclusive trophies Australia has to offer. All you have to do is work with a bespoke awards and trophies designer like Design Awards, and you can be confident that you’ll be able to get unique trophies tailored to your particular needs and preferences with no hassle and minimal cost to you or your business.
For over twenty years, the team here at Design Awards has been perfecting the art of creating the ultimate bespoke trophies. We work closely with our clients to form an understanding of exactly what it is they’re looking for, before setting to work combining our design expertise and highly skilled artisanship to craft unique, individual awards that never fail to impress. And, having grown from being a small Sydney company to an international provider of top-quality bespoke awards, we’re highly proud of the fact that our entire design and manufacture process continues to be conducted right here in Australia from our Sydney and Melbourne premises, under the guidance of founder Bruce Dodds and his two sons.
Buying exclusive trophies online at Design Awards is an entirely straightforward process. You can sit back in the comfort of your own home or office and browse through the examples of our previous work available on our website in order to get some inspiration regarding the kinds of materials and/or designs that might be suitable for your project. Then, you simply fill out the enquiry form to request a quote, and a member of our knowledgeable team will be in touch shortly to discuss your preferences and requirements. Once we’ve drawn up a brief for your project, it will be over to our design team to provide you with a few options that match what you’re looking for within your budget. After you’ve chosen the one you’d like to commission, our highly trained craftspeople will get to work handcrafting your selected trophy.
Once your trophy is finished, we’ll arrange for it to be delivered to your door, anywhere in Australia, for a standard postage fee. We can also ship to international clients, although postage rates vary for these orders. For more information about how we can provide you with the exclusive trophies you need in order to celebrate success in style, simply get in touch with a member of our friendly team and we’ll be happy to answer your questions.

We are a small team of designers and artisan makers that specialise in the creation of beautiful trophies and awards. We have two workshops, one based in Sydney and one in Melbourne, where we design and hand craft high-end awards, trophies, plaques, medallions and more.
It all started with the state of awards in Australia. The problem was clear: meaningful award ceremonies, meaningless trophies. Think brittle plastic trophies shaped like an Oscar, think crystal mugs etched with Comic Sans. Awards were an afterthought undeserving of their recipients.
The answer, as founder and sculptor Bruce Dodds saw it back in 1994, was considered design hand-crafted in Australia. Thankfully, the idea caught on.
As a result, Design Awards has been changing the face of the Australian awards industry for over 20 years. Our design-first approach means every single award is unique, and the care and consideration taken in each award imbues a meaningfulness which cannot be achieved in mass produced items.
As we see it, design is what sets us apart and our craftsmanship is our pride.
We have curated our online pages to highlight what we can achieve for you, have a browse for inspiration or give us a call to discuss something completely different.
Absolutely everything we produce, from our medals and medallions to our trophies and statuettes, is completely bespoke. We believe a hand crafted, unique element makes an award that much more special, so we are more than happy to take the time to design something new and meaningful for you.
Please have a browse through our galleries: Acrylic, Metal, Crystal, Corporate, Perpetual Awards, Bespoke Awards, Plaques, Custom Medals, and Premium Sports Trophies. Whilst we take the utmost care in sourcing sustainable and eco-friendly materials for all our awards, we have a dedicated sustainability section for the most environmentally minded.
We craft the extraordinary. With a huge breadth of experience spanning from Government and Business, to top tier Sports, to Not-for-Profits and Education, we have the expertise to create exactly what you have in mind. Corporate awards, premium sports trophies, deal toys, tombstones, perpetuals, centrepieces and bespoke sculptures, we are the industry leader in hand-crafted excellence, modernising the face of Australian trophy design.
Trusted by both Australian and international clients of the highest calibre who demand the most stringent of quality standards, with relationships spanning in excess of 20 years, is testament to the quality and craftsmanship of every single one our pieces. Want to know more? Check out our testimonials page.
What makes us unique? For starters, our design-led approach and local, in-house production. We are certainly not your typical trophy shop.
Unlike almost every other trophy supplier, we strictly do not mass-produce our awards. Instead, our team designs and handcrafts every single award and trophy because of our dedication to originality and our belief that the personal touch is so much more meaningful. In terms of custom awards and trophies, we sit at an unrivalled position within Australia, which means that you can order with confidence knowing you are in trustworthy hands. Check out our Who We Are page to see more about our ethos.
Because we have fully equipped workshops in both Sydney and Melbourne, we are also able to offer a wide range of other services online such as engraving, metal casting, aluminium printing, ID plates, unique signage and more, and have a wide selection of materials to choose from, ensuring that you get exactly what you want, plus a little bit more.
