Waterford Crystal, a heritage brand synonymous with celebration, is the maker of the 2015 People’s Choice Awards. Designed and hand-cut by Waterford artisans at the House of Waterford Crystal factory, these bespoke, sparkling crystal trophies will have a new home with each talented winner. Weighing 10 pounds and measuring 14 inches high, the award features small upright cuts on the base, which create the light refraction that Waterford is best known for.

The large centre wedge cuts on both sides of the top part of the award are exceptionally deep, showing the extreme thickness and clarity of the crystal. The award is modern is design, but steeped in Waterford Crystal heritage and craftsmanship.

Previous winners included Sandra Bullock, Justin Timberlake, Ellen DeGeneres, Jennifer Hudson and Britney Spears.

Croke Park Classic Coach's Award

The Croke Park Classic is an American Football Spectacle which was held in Dublin on the 30th August 2014. This year the University of Central Florida (UCF) hosted Penn State in their Season Opener in the GAA Headquarters – Croke Park. This is the first time UCF and Penn State have played outside the United States. The teams competed for the Dan Rooney Trophy named after a key player in the GAA’s redevelopment plans for Croke Park in the early nineties.

The House of Waterford Crystal provided the Croke Park Classic Coach’s Award which was presented at the end of the game. The trophy was designed and hand crafted at our Waterford factory and is a crystal replica of an American Football helmet. This Crystal Trophy was designed by Billy Briggs, who captured the true classic shape of the American Football Helmet. The design, sparkle and quality reflect the unique design and craftsmanship of Waterford Crystal.

The piece was mouth blown and hand cut using traditional manufacturing techniques. The diamond cutting across the surface of the helmet allows the light catch it, in order to create the magical sparkle, associated with Waterford Crystal.

The House of Waterford Crystal is also the proud sponsor of the Man of the Match Award.
