Saskatchewan Music Awards:
The Award Designs
Each year we have unveiled a new design for the SMA trophy that is presented to winners. Here's details about each of those pieces.
Our inaugural trophy was a simple crystal design.
The 2019 award was an art piece crafted by Saskatoon Makerspace out of concrete and glass, with the shape of a sound
wave as inspiration, and incorporating the first SMA logo design.

Caring for your trophy
The clear acrylic nameplates can be damaged by harsh solvents and cleaners. Use a commercial plastic cleaner or mild soap and water and non-abrasive lint-free or microfiber cloth that won't scratch the surface. Don’t use household cleaners, such as Windex, 409, ammonia, or Fantastik, as they may break down the material and make it look cloudy.
The natural wood bases can be dusted with a microfibre cloth.
