'AwardsandTrophies.com.au' was established in 1992 under the name 'Western Suburbs Awards and Trophies'. The business started in a one car garage in the Brisbane suburb of Graceville and then moved to Oxley in 2001.
In September 2006 the business was purchased by Russell & Annette Colpoys, who along with a dynamic and growing team have transformed it from a small retail outlet into Australia's largest trophy retailer. In July 2007 the business was relaunched and rebranded as 'AwardsandTrophies.com.au', coinciding with the launch of the industry's first fully ecommerce website. In July 2009, after 3 years of rapid growth, the business moved to its current location in Milton. Marketing, infrastructure and a passion for ecommerce have certainly helped, but a strong focus on the needs of our customers and our team have been the key ingredient to the company's continued growth.
On January 11th 2011, after weeks of sustained rainfall, Milton and the greater Brisbane area were inundated by flood water from the Brisbane River. The showroom, production and warehouse level was submerged with 850mm of muddy river water, leaving only the upstairs offices dry. Luckily most of the equipment and stock was relocated before the flood waters reached critical levels. With the overwhelming help and generosity of staff, family, friends, neighbours, emergency services (even the army) and many, many welcome strangers, the business was rapidly repatriated to its pre flood state. Less than 2.5 weeks after the flood the doors were 'open for business'.
It's easy for a company to claim that they're the best in their industry, we prefer to let our customers say it for us:
Insurance Group Australia
"A short note to thank you for the ease and swiftness of your service. At no time was anything ever "too hard" and everything was communicated clearly and concisely. The end result is perfect, exactly what we required. Considering the whole ordering process was done via email (since we are located in Melbourne) I am impressed with how friendly and informative the staff were. Once again, congratulations on excellent customer service and a fantastic product."

We have just held our Annual Presentation Day, and as you advised the trophies arrived in the time frame discussed and were of the highest quality. Myself, the committee, players and parents were all very impressed with the service you provided and the quality of both the product and the engraving. I have personally given your details to several other Club Presidents. Once again, many thanks for your assistance in making our day a success."
