TIPA Awards are recognized as the most coveted photo & imaging awards worldwide. A trophy should emphasize a prize and be a memory 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.
Today, the three-star sculpture designed by the Spanish artist Pedro Requejo Novoa
stresses the power of the TIPA Awards and recalls the three pillars of photography: communication, art and technology.
