Pause Awards trophy
The Pause Awards trophy design is a pure aesthetic marvel designed around the concept of Olympic Games, by comparing athletes to entrepreneurs.
In 2022, we even won an award at the prestigious international Good Design Australia for the excellence in design, innovation and impact in the ‘Communication Design’ category.
Trophy design concept
Introducing the Pause Awards Trophy, the ultimate symbol of excellence in entrepreneurship. Inspired by the spirit of the Olympic Games, this trophy embodies the qualities of a true champion: strength, innovation and perseverance.
The trophy features two interconnected plus shapes that represent the unbreakable bond between winners and the Pause Awards community. With an arch that symbolises the upward trajectory of success, this trophy delivers ‘more out of less’.
But what sets the Pause Awards Trophy apart is its dual function. Not content with merely being a symbol of victory, this trophy comes in two parts designed to be worn like a medal – a constant reminder of the winner’s extraordinary achievement.
The winners can take their trophy with them wherever they go. Attach it to their backpack or hang it in the office – this trophy is a statement of success that will not go unnoticed.
Pause Awards Trophies come in a range of three stunning colours, including white, black and TBC. Each trophy features delicate pastel lines that evoke a sense of calm and tranquillity.
So if you’re ready to take your entrepreneurial journey to the next level, then the Pause Awards Trophy is the perfect symbol of your success. Join the ranks of champions today and show the world that you are truly a force to be reckoned with.
At Pause Awards, we know that winning isn’t everything, and we also understand that owning a trophy may not be your top priority. But if you’re someone who appreciates the ecosystem and values design, our trophy is the ultimate symbol of excellence in entrepreneurship.
If you’re ready to visibly showcase your company’s success as a true champion in business, then the PRO, which includes Pause Awards Trophy, is the perfect choice for you. It’s a stunning work of art that will inspire and motivate anyone who sets their sights on greatness.
ProFor teams that want to own success,
support and engage in the community.

Introducing the world’s first TrophyNFT, part of Pause Awards. This digital certificate of authenticity complements your physical trophy and is perfect for those who love exploring new tech.
The TrophyNFT is a unique and valuable asset that can be displayed, traded, or collected and represents your commitment to the Pause Awards community. Dive into the world of blockchain, web3 and the metaverse with your Pause TrophyNFT.
Why Pause TrophyNFT?
NFT stands for a non-fungible token. NFT is simply the receipt (aka file) of an original ownership stored and distributed on the blockchain that can be traded and transferred. While an NFT is a receipt of original ownership of the trophy, it also often includes an image, video, or even a 3D model.
We liked the idea of minting an NFT of the physical trophy because we want to transfer 100% of the ownership to each winner. It’s as simple as that! You’ve won it, and you should own it. Pause Awards is the first award program in the world to propose a concept like this.
Here are five more use cases of how NFT can be helpful in the near future:
- To transfer land deeds, provide proof of ownership and even keep track of the artwork.
- Allowing access to exclusive content without accounts.
- To protect intellectual property and patents.
- Can provide proof of attendance, degree earned, and other important information.
- To replace tickets in the very near future. For example, parking passes.
NFTs will provide an ease of use for many services. They will also increase transparency in many transactions, especially when it comes to the ownership of physical properties such as artworks, real estate, a concept or idea, and such.
Currently, NFTs are sold as artworks, and most of them hold very little to no value; some of them can be scams. But very few are incredible with great stories backed by a strong community, and they can be beautiful artworks too. There are many NFT galleries that sign specific artists to create such artworks.
What’s the benefit of TrophyNFT?
Some of you, like many, may not hold any cryptocurrencies and don’t understand the full value of owning an NFT. But the Pause NFT trophy will mark the beginning of an interesting new adventure for you.
Right now, and in the very near future, you can expect to:
- Use Pause NFT as a Twitter avatar.
- Start your NFT collection of event badges and artworks.
- Interact with new technology and get clued up for things to come.
- Get special invites for in-person VIP events.
- Exhibit your NFT in group gallery shows.
- Take your 3D trophy as NFT into the metaverse at Decentraland.
- Sell or trade your Pause NFT trophy.
But don’t worry, we’re also learning along the way as it’s all a very new and unexplored territory with huge potential.
Pause Awards is breaking new grounds by introducing the Pause NFT trophy to help you learn more about the potential of this new technology. And for those who are more proficient, this is an opportunity to expand their collections, add more value and play along.
Plus, doing this sets us apart from other award programs!
