Premier Trophy Awards

The PDA’s flagship event of the year is the prestigious Premier Trophy Awards, held at the historic Plaisterer’s Hall in London.

Launched in 1987, the awards were the brainchild of professionals and suppliers who joined forces to improve the profile of the sector at the Building Employers Confederation headquarters.

As a result, the National Federation of Painting and Decorating Contractors (NFPDC) implemented a competition with the appointment of the Clerk of Works Incorporation Council (ICW) as independent inspectors.

It was decided that the objectives of the Premier Trophy Awards should be to demonstrate the diversity of skill and craft, show efficiency of service to clients and develop the highest standards of excellence for the industry.

The competition has been running for more than 30 years and still holds true to these objectives.

The glittering event takes place each year at the historic Plaisterer’s Hall with awards presented to those who have excelled in their category.

The PDA award competitions encourage and support excellence from across the industry whether that be the skills of an apprentice, sole-trader or national company.

Entries for the 2020 Premier Trophy Awards is now closed. Thank you to everyone who entered this year. As of 17 March 2020, with government guidelines for Covid-19 we are suspending the project inspections by judges. All being well we hope to resume these at a later date. Winners will be announced at the rescheduled awards ceremony on 16 September 2021 at Plaisterer’s Hall, London.
