Kent Creative Awards – Trophy Design

Call to Kent Artists: Trophy design ***NOW CLOSED***

  • Kent Creative Arts is inviting all creative artists and designers (living or working in Kent) to enter a competition for the creation of the trophy for the new ‘Kent Creative Awards’. Trophies will be presented to the winners of twelve categories, during a ceremony held on 18th May 2016.
  • This competition is for the design and the making of 12 trophies.
  • A public vote will take place to choose the final design.
  • The winning entry will receive a £600 fee (£50 per trophy). (You will need to work within this budget to produce 12 pieces).


  • Some inspiration should be taken from the Awards logo (see banner at the top of this page) so it provides some consistency…
  • Original designs can be made as drawings on paper, digital designs, photographs, or 3D maquettes… However, the submission must be in the form of digital images (up to 3 jpg files, 72dpi, 800pix wide minimum) so it can be displayed online for the vote to take place.
  • The trophy’s dimensions (including the base) must fit in a shape measuring 30cm x 20cm x 20cm:
  • Trophy shapes
  • The design of the trophy must be the same for all categories and include the following text on all 12 trophies:
    – Kent Creative Awards 2016
    – In association with [Name of the main sponsor TBC]
    – Kent Creative Arts CIC
    with only one difference for each trophy (the name of the category):
    – [Award Category TBC]
  • Details of materials involved in the making of the trophy


A few things to keep in mind

  • All submitted work must be original
  • The artists retain the copyright of their work
  • The twelve actual trophies produced for the competition will become the property of Kent Creative Arts CIC; and then of the winners.
