Premier’s Service Excellence Awards Trophies

Kimberley, Northern Cape

Price Waterhouse Coopers and the then Premier of the Northern Cape, Manne Dipico, required a set of trophies to be presented to public services that showed excellence in service delivery.

To this end a series of trophies was needed to be designed and produced for presentation at a gala banquet to gold, silver and bronze award winners.

Numerous designs were submitted and Shapiro’s design was selected.

Shapiro drew on the technical skills of numerous crafters in the making of the trophy. For example, the drawings on the trophy were made by Patat van Wyk, a San crafter.

The trophies were cast out of bronze and mounted on a base of indigenous wood.
