The Sword

Since its evolution from the dagger in the Bronze Age, the sword has been a symbol of status and influence, forever associated with the standards and virtues of chivalry.

By declaring its winners ‘Knights of Illumination’ and presenting them with a finely crafted sword, the KOI Awards signals the standard of their achievements and their right to be upheld as masters of their art.

The sword is a reminder for our designers of how their hard work and dedication has benefited and complemented artistic performance, colouring and enhancing the lives of others through entertainment.
