We recognize our partners for their loyalty, commitment, and hard work in helping make these Freddie Awards possible. We are proud and honored to call them partners and appreciate the difference they have made with the event this year.

These designers of high end custom awards played a major part in the new Freddie Award introduced in 2013. Wanting to continue with a familiar design of the obelisk, the modern take on the Freddie Award pays tribute to its past but clearly places in into the future.

Interested in being one of the sponsors of the Freddie Awards? We would be honored to hear from you.
