Extreme sports week
Welcome back to the Creative Awards London blog. This week we take a totally radical look into our awesome and awe inspiring awards with the Extreme Sports Week. Grab your bandana, defer to ALL authority and join us as we look through our awards for extremely cool extreme sports.
Extreme sports are one of the fastest growing sports movements of today. It is estimated that over 500 million globally participate in extreme sports each year. Known for their thrill seeking, adrenaline pumping and edge of your seat antics, extreme sports are participated across land, sea and sky.
We feel the need, the need for speed with the A1 medals. The A1 Grand Prix was an international set of meets across the globe that focused on racing as nation states as opposed to the more traditional team based set up of F1. Known as the World Cup of racing, the A1 Grand Prix brought together teams to compete for up a prize pot of up to $500,000 per meet. The custom made medals are made from precious metals and feature the race insignia and the classic laurel wreath motif engraved around the rim of the piece.
One of the world’s biggest extreme sports brands O’Neill is synonymous with snowboarding across the world. Started in 1962 in foggy San Francisco, O’Neill is sold in over 80 countries and champions up and coming athletes as well as established names within skating, surfing and, of course, snowboarding. The bespoke award combines the jagged, organic texture of a stone base with a smooth and futuristic metal body hand engraved with beautiful art.
Bike motocross, or BMX as it is commonly known, is one of the most popular extreme sports on the planet. Speed, endurance and skill perfectly combine in a fast-paced, actio -packed sport. The bespoke award was specially commissioned for the iBMXff BMX World Championships featuring both professional and amateur contests across Park, Vert, Flatland and Dirt categories. Gnarly graphics engraved on polished metal create this cool award capturing what the sport is all about.
Wax on, wax off and hit the surf with the Irish Surfing Awards. From the beaches of Santa Monica to Strandhill, surfing is a sport that’s appreciated worldwide. For more than 70 years people have enjoyed harnessing the power of the surf to enjoy and the global popularity of surfing has spawned entire cultures and music. The custom made award with its rounded body, mirroring the barrels of the much desired perfect wave, features a high resolution graphic and a custom cut metal figurine. Totally tubular.
This award rocks. Commissioned by a mountain cycling association, the bespoke acrylic award celebrates climbing with the typical Creative Awards London twist. Featuring three separate tones of acrylic, the body of the award playfully resembles a hazard sign with the featured gradient.
We hope that our awards and blog have inspired you to dig out the wetsuit and hit the surf, dust off the beanie and snowboard down a mountain or pull some sick 360 spins on your Rayleigh Chopper.
