There are many reasons why you might be looking for a trophy shop in Brisbane. Whatever your need, we are confident that you will not be able to find a better place to secure decent trophies online in Brisbane, Perth, Sydney or in Melbourne. With over twenty years of supplying some of the most prestigious events and companies in Australia with high quality, handmade, stylish awards, we have garnered a stellar reputation for our incredible collection of products.
Whether you are looking for somewhere local, or somewhere online, we guarantee that you will not find a better online trophy shop in Brisbane or anywhere else. Our record speaks for itself, we would not still be operating within such a niche market if we did not deliver the best possible products! Not only are we still operating, we are thriving as one of the most well-respected trophy shops in Brisbane and beyond!
What makes us stand out from others within our industry is our history and our approach. Our company was founded in 1994 by the designer and sculptor, Bruce Dodds. The objective being to create awards that were worthy of the recipients, as it was deemed that there were far too many meaningful award ceremonies with less than worthy trophies. .
From our inception as a small retail outlet with an artisan background, we have developed our approach to become a premium supplier of trophies and awards who are known for their design-led approach and expert craftsmanship. We offer a wide array of products suited to the needs of customers, including trophies, awards, medals, statuettes and medallions.
Part of what makes our trophies and collection of well-crafted products unique is our bespoke approach to design. We strive to deviate from a one size fits all approach and instead endeavour to create a trophy that is unique and individualised to suit the needs and desires of our customers. It is this approach that has led to us working with almost every major brand in Australia. The nature of our product means that the cost can vary from customer to customer but we genuinely expect our products to be ready within four to six weeks (though this can be done quicker if requested). All of our products are designed and created here in Australia but can be delivered anywhere, including internationally.
If you want to create the perfect trophy for you then get in touch with one our designers today so we can provide with you a range of options to choose from. The beauty of our design-led approach is that you can have some input into the design and you will be able to ensure that the end-product matches your specific desires. The quicker you get in touch, the sooner you will have your bespoke, well-designed and expertly crafted trophies to dazzle and impress everyone who sees them!

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.

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.
