Plagiarius-Trophy


Negative Award Plagiarius - Innovation vs. Imitation

Aktion Plagiarius e.V. conducts an annual competition that awards an “anti-prize” to those manufacturers and distributors that a jury of peers have found guilty of making or selling "the most flagrant" imitations. Our signature trophy of a black gnome with a golden nose symbolises the exorbitant earnings product pirates collect at the cost of innovative companies. This gnome was created to express the German aphorism "to earn oneself a golden nose" meaning to earn a lot of money.
