Trophies/Plaques

This will be the second year we do not automatically send physical plaques to the winners. We have decided against this due to the cost of sending them around the world and it is not environmentally friendly (hence our move to providing verified certificates and badges that can be shared electronically and printed and framed). However, we can send trophies if requested for an additional charge to cover their production and postage. Examples of trophy design can be provided.
