SME 300 Awards: Celebrating SME Success in Scotland

The prestigious Business Insider & Bank of Scotland SME 300 Awards took place earlier this month at the Glasgow Science Centre, hosted by the BBC's Louise Minchin. The Awards celebrate the success of Scotland's best performing small to medium sized companies with turnover between £8m and £20m. Now in their fourth year, and with a new sponsor, the awards were given a fresh new look by Gaudio.

Gaudio Designs Trophy for Sport Relief Sock Sliding Challenge!

Pineapple Dance Studios star, Louie Spence, has recreated Tom Cruise’s classic scene from ‘Risky Business’ – but with a Sport Relief Twist. The Dancing on Ice judge has been snapped pulling the pose whilst wearing the new, official, Sport Relief Socks in a bid to launch Sainsbury’s Sock Sliding Championship this week.

In Depth: Sculptured Awards

When thinking of bespoke awards, the first thing most people think of is a sculptured award. The Oscars, Brit Awards, Pride of Britain, Grammy's and Bafta's are all famous examples of sculptured trophies. These awards are typically very traditional and classic in design, although more contemporary designs are possible. Sculpted trophies are ideal if you are working with a large budget and need a prestigous trophy that reflects an organic shape, statue or 3D object, rather than a logo or event branding.
