Winners Full Package

The Winners Full Package is optional, but you don’t get to enjoy any of the below benefits. We're building an Innovation and Impact Index, not just selling trophies. Winning Pause Award was like ‘Oscars’ worthy for the Australian tech and innovation sector and there are many benefits that come out of it.

Unlimited use of Pause Awards Trademark

Trademark License will allow you to use Pause Awards logo in marketing on your website, signatures, brochures and in the media and press releases for a lifetime.

Engraved Pause Awards Trophy

Pause Awards Trophy is a limited edition beautifully designed object that changes each year. 2021 trophies are moulded from the fine grain eco-friendly concrete mixed with Butterscotch and Blue Opal colour pigment. Your name and NFT code will be laser engraved on the back with 0.2 precision and mailed to you in a recyclable packaging.

Pause Awards NFT Trophy

Pause Awards NFT Trophy will be minted in Rarible, Open Sea or MakersPlace platform as a basic image. Collectors Edition design is available on request at an additional cost. We can also reach out to our global network of CGI artists, some of whom work on Hollywood titles to create your Premium Collectors NFT.

Pick a package you want to order, and then select your company size for correct fees.


Click on the button and it will take you to Stripe payment processing page. Make a payment.


We'll collect your postal address to mail the trophy out to you from Stripe form entered. Standard and GRAND PRIX trophies cost the same and we'll match correct trophy with your award and payment. Shipping is included.


Please allow minimum 4 weeks for NFT and 10 weeks for physical trophies production, but if we can deliver earlier we will. They are all made on order in batches and there is a final deadline after which we won't make any more of this year's trophies.


We suggest that you order your trophies ie. get Winners Full Package at your earliest to avoid disappointment of not getting your trophy made. You'll still get other benefits of Winner's Full Package if ordered late.
