The Pentawards Trophy

The Pentawards trophy was designed and engraved by Belgo-American Artists Christian Heckscher. The trophy has the iconic Pentawards symbol, with a hollow pentagon in the centre which represents our 5 senses and is the ancient symbol of beauty.

The trophies are manufactured with a zinc alloy and after being polished are plated. The "diamond" is a Swarovski crystal.
