The BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards took place on Sunday with a brand new trophy designed and manufactured by Gaudio Awards.
The Teen Heroes were the stars of the show, including Jack Marshall, who took home the new Stephen Sutton Award for fundraising. The award was presented by Stephen’s brother Chris to 16 year old winner Jack who has raised tens of thousands of pounds for charity despite suffering from Moebius Syndrome, an extremely rare condition which means he suffers from sight, hearing and balance problems and has no facial nerves. On receiving his award he said he “wants to do Stephen proud.”
On the celebrity front, The Vamps were the night’s biggest winners, taking home 3 awards, including Best British Band, much to the surprise of One Direction fans! Ed Sheeran took home Best British Solo Artist, Tom Daley won Best British Sports Star and Sherlock got the gong for Best British TV Show.
The BBC approached Gaudio to design a bespoke award for this prestigious event based around the Radio 1 branding. The final design is manufactured from highly polished aluminium, with a colour printed facia. Gaudio Managing Director, Adam Hutchinson was thrilled to have been chosen as the manufacturer,
“It’s always an honour to be involved in such a high profile event. The winners are so inspirational and we’re pleased have provided an award fitting of their achievements.”
Radio 1 were certainly please with their new awards, so much so that they have ordered extras to display around the office. Radio 1 breakfast host Nick Grimshaw described the new awards as the ‘best awards we’ve ever had’.
