Award Winning Collaboration

LMA Trophy 


The second Liverpool Music Awards ceremony, sponsored by Liverpool City Council took place on Sunday 25 August at St George’s Hall, as part of the new Liverpool International Music Festival. The red carpet event honours the heroes of the Liverpool music scene, from the musicians to those behind the scenes.

This year's all star line up included Miles Kane, Heidi Range, China Crisis, Lee Butler and Paul RutherfordHosted by Liverpool born DJ Janice Long, it proved to be a star studded event.

Once again for the second year Ilsa Parry and Tom Sutton teamed up together to design and manufacture the trophies for this prestigious event. Tom Sutton handcrafted the laser cut sheet metal into cylindrical scrolls and manipulated them to pinch more in the middle to give the look and feel of it having been held in the middle by the ribbon. This ribbon now varies in thickness, becoming wider as it descends in an elegant single twist to meet the lathe turned wooden bases, hand finished by Ilsa Parry's in-house designer Andrew Luft

This year the evolution of the award led to a more statuesque appearance that conveys a quality of elegance and importance. This was achieved through developing the ribbon section which graciously increases in width as it reaches the walnut base. The scroll retains its original identity, visually ensuring the importance of this internationally recognised award. See More...
