Modern Forms trophies for the Pogórze Ultra Trail

The first edition of the Pogórze Ultra Trail was an excellent opportunity for the runners to get to know the beautiful corners of the Strzyżów-Dynów Foothills region. A souvenir of the sporting rivalry and great atmosphere were the prizes prepared by Modern Forms. Their list included sports trophies.

PUT trophies in numbers:

  • 18 trophies in the OPEN category – these were distinguished by three sizes: 6 x 30 cm, 6 x 25 cm and 6 x 20 cm
  • 72 trophies in the age categories – these were single-panel trophies 20 cm high

Modern Forms' place during the PUT

Modern Forms, as strategic sponsor of the PUT, provided not only impressive prizes for the runners – including trophies in several categories – but also organisational support for the event. In addition to a company stand, where runners could find unique designs of medals and sports trophies, leaflets, catalogues and gifts, our brand organised a chillout zone. The relaxation area with deckchairs, refreshments in the form of sweets and commemorative key chains attracted crowds.

What was the PUT?

The Pogórze Ultra Trail is a local initiative of running enthusiasts from the Strzyżów area. The first edition of the event took place on 24 July 2022. The event was organised by local runners from the Subcarpathia region with runners from all over the country in mind. The ambassadors of the event were Paulina Jemioła, Radosław Slaski and Gniewomir Skrzysiński.

More than 300 participants took part in the first PUT competition. The runners had to cover a route running through beautiful corners of the Strzyżów-Dynów Foothills. They competed over three varied distances – 60km PUT, 25km Concrete and 13km Novice. Each of these was adapted to the running abilities of the competitors. At the same time, the routes were designed not only to be challenging, but also to show the beauty of the corners of the Strzyżów region, its natural and historical assets.

There was no shortage of prizes either… In addition to the Modern Forms sports trophies and medals, the organisers also took care to offer a special prize. It went to the winner of the PUT run on the 60-kilometre route – Artur Jendrych. The runner received a pass for the Cirque Series run in Engelberg, which will already take place on 24 September 2022.

Company trophy, or how to thank in business

Acknowledgements have become a permanent part of company ceremonies celebrating the end of the year or a round jubilee. They may take various forms – a cash price, a diploma, or a plaque with engraving. However, the most elegant way of appreciating an employee or thanking for cooperation is presenting a tasteful personalised trophy. Ideally, the award should be tailored to the occasion, including the name of the recpend and/or the company name.

Which trophy to give to the boss and which one to award the sponsor? Is a trophy a good idea to appreciate a long-term employee? How can business trophies look like? We will try to answer this and several other questions in this article.

Trophies for sponsors, acknowledgement of cooperation

A productive corporate partnership? A symbolic thank you to an event sponsor? A personalised statuette is the perfect idea. It will become an expression of gratitude for the help and cooperation in archiving goals and will emphasise the importance of the person or company. A stylish, beautifully designed statuette can be proudly placen on a representative shelf next to the other trophies or awards.

What to keep in mind when ordering a thank you trophy?

  • specify the number of statuettes 
  • state your name and surname and/or the name of the company you wish to place on the statuette, 
  • state the reason for the award, e.g. thanks for long-term cooperation and other texts you wish to place on the award,
  • send graphic elements such as logotypes, company colours, font used most often in your company communication (if you want the award to be consistent with the visual identity of your company)
  • agree with your account manager on materials, decoration methods and approximate budget – this will allow you to quickly estimate and design the award,
  • you may be inspired by previous projects and adjust one to your needs (in your message to the account manager give its number).

Commemorative tropies for the boss

A personalised tropies can also be a good idea for a gift from your employees to your boss. When designing a corporate gift, it is worth taking into account the interests and passions of the recipient, e.g. motorcycling, fishing, fast cars or love for sailing boats. A statuette in the shape of a yacht or other favourite vehicle will surely appeal to the employer and stay in his memory for a long time. It will also be a stylish decoration, which will look great in the boss’s office.

When designing a tropies for your boss, you can be tempted by the „wow effect”. What are we talking about?

  • movable elements of the statuette,
  • illumination with leds – a statuette as a decorative lamp? why not!
  • non-standard combination of materials,
  • gilding, 
  • parts sent by customers incorporated into the statuette e.g. the boss’s favourite ball autographed by his idol, a commemorative photo or other materials.

Anniversary statuettes for long-serving employees

It is not only the boss who deserves appreciation. The strength of any company are the people – the employees who have contributed to its development for many years and who have remained loyal to the team. They should not be forgotten when preparing the awards for the company gala. A statuette for a long-term employee should include his or her name and surname, emphasis on the time spent working for the company (15, 20, 35 years) and words of appreciation placed, for example, on a plaque.

If not a statuette, then perhaps a commemorative medal

Do you feel that a business statuette is not it after all? Do you have to fit into a limited budget? Why not choose a commemorative medal in a decorative box instead of a statuette? You can place the same information on the medal as on the statuette (your name, logo and the name of your company, the occasion of presenting the award). The commemorative medal can also contain custom moving elements, spatial printing or consist of several different materials. What’s more, the medal doesn’t have to be round at all! We can cut out any shape you want.


Ecology has become very fashionable and there are more environmental events than ever before. Offering a unique environmental trophy as a souvenir or interesting promotional item is one way to stand out in a crowded market of similar events.


What is ecology for Modern Forms? It is the use of environmentally friendly materials and technologies and supporting the eco activities of our customers. Out of concern for the environment, we have introduced a collection of unique Eco Trophies made of wood, glass and cardboard.

  • Glass and wooden trophies are characterised by a simple design.
  • Cardboard and wooden trophies are covered with an elegant 3D print.
  • Trophies of the eco line are kept in natural colours referring to nature. In addition, all materials used for the trophies are biodegradable.

When organising an event in an ecological sense, it is worth considering trophies made of wood, glass and cardboard. This is an interesting and inexpensive alternative to the somewhat outdated cast iron trophies. Ecological trophies fit perfectly into the atmosphere of an ecological event and can become a unique souvenir for the participants. Especially since wood, glass and cardboard are a great medium for printing or engraving – you can put anything you need on them (event or company logo, any graphic).
