Order your GANG AWARD Trophies

and/or Finalist Certificates

We have information for you if are a GANG Award winner and would like to order duplicate trophies for yourself or the rest of your team. And if you or your team were Finalists (final nominees) in this year’s awards, you can order an embossed/foil stamped ‘official finalist’ certificate, suitable for framing.

You can download the order form HERE and when you have it filled out you can send it to [email protected]

The form allows you to order any quantity of trophy duplicates or certificates (certificates are for Finalists, not for winners) as long as you or your company were affiliated with the nominated post_title.

GANG Award Trophy duplicates are $135 (including domestic shipping – for international shipping rates please contact us)
GANG Award Finalist Certificates are $49 (including domestic shipping – for international shipping rates please contact us)

Payments can be made with paypal (we’ll send an invoice once we process your application) and if you are ordering for a large corporation that needs an invoice, we can send the invoice to the appropriate party if you supply us with that information.

Your order must be to GANG by May 6th and should be shipped to you by mid-May. And to be clear, certificates(and probably trophies)will be available to order again in the future once we set up a regular ordering system. So this isn’t your only opportunity.

A Note from Chance Thomas on the Certificates

I’ll never forget how I felt in 2006 when King Kong was nominated for Music of the Year. It was a major affirmation of my work as a video game composer. But when prospective clients visited my studio, there was nothing to show for it. I had no evidence that such an honor ever came to me.

GANG is changing all that. Certificates of Nomination are now available for anyone who is an official GANG Award Nominee. And these certificates are gorgeous! Not only are they personalized with your name, post_title, category and year, but they also feature embossed designs of the GANG statuette and logo covered in stunning holographic foil. Evidential art you can hang on your wall. I love it!

Beginning today, anyone who has ever been nominated for a GANG award – that means every year since 2002 – can order certificates from GANG’s website. The cost is $49 each. You can even pick up additional copies for your client, your producer, or a particularly valuable contributor such as a soloist, engineer or agent.

After all these years, King Kong will finally have a place of honor on my studio wall. Likewise, your nominations can now be displayed in their own places of honor too. Thank you GANG!
