New York Festivals: Breaking moulds, and closing entries soon
The trophy design was inspired by New York City's classic Art Deco skyscrapers. And its different... designer Stefan Sagmeister says he always hated glued-on metal name plates, so each NYF trophy contains a Pico type video projector that projects digital video credits onto any nearby viewing surface. Winners will see their names in lights...from the agency creatives to the client side...the entire production team can be included in the credit roll just like at the end of a feature film.

"New York Festivals new advertising trophy has smashed the mould for advertising trophies. The trophy's innovative Pico projector displays an unlimited number of credits, everyone involved on the winning campaign can be recognised for their creative contribution," said Michael O'Rourke, President, New York Festivals.

The five trophies sizes and unique designs include: World's Best Idea, Grand Prize, First Prize, Second Prize, and Third Prize.
