TIPA Awards are recognised as the most coveted photo and imaging awards worldwide. A trophy should emphasise a prize and be a reminder of an important success, so design and style is of paramount importance.
Until 1998, TIPA trophies were creative methacrylate arrays designed by the German designer Kay Lippmann to support and give maximum visibility to the very first and round TIPA Awards logo. In the year 2000, TIPA took a step up and switched to bronze. For three years our trophy was an exquisite piece of art created and signed by the Italian world famous sculptor Arnaldo Pomodoro. Then a three-star sculpture designed by the Spanish artist Pedro Requejo Novoa was used.
The current design with a globe sculpture stresses the power of the TIPA Awards as the most coveted photo and imaging award worldwide.
