The Grammys on the Hill Awards celebrate political advocacy for the recorded music industry. The event is put on by The Recording Academy, which is behind the Grammy Awards. Among the honorees were Little Big Town and Representatives Judy Chu (D-CA) and Doug Collins (R-GA).
Society Awards worked with The Recording Academy to create two new custom awards for the event. The first is an extruded column that is sheared at an angle to reveal the iconic Grammy gramophone. The form is mounted on a matching tapered metal base with a cast relief of the Recording Academy’s extended logo. The trophy is finished in a glowing, hand-polished silver chrome surface.
The second custom trophy created for the event is a black Lucite obelisk. This obelisk is decorated with a raised Recording Academy logo in silver for a sharp, luxurious contrast. The sides of the form are textured with vertical lines that are also finished in silver. The polished Lucite form is mounted atop a brushed silver metal base.
The Grammys on the Hill event was broadcast live on April 18th.
