I-Pace designer to create new World Car Awards trophies

When the 19th annual, 2023 World Car Awards are presented at the New York International Auto Show next April, the winners will receive new versions of the traditional World Car trophy, created by Ian Callum – the man who designed the Jaguar I-Pace and now runs the engineering consultancy CALLUM. 

The new trophies, which will maintain the thematic design elements of the originals and the World Car Awards logo, will be produced by Replique using advanced additive manufacturing techniques. 

Ian Callum, who was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in 2019 for services to the British car industry, is widely heralded as one of the auto industry’s most prominent designers. 

Before leaving his position as Director of Design at Jaguar Land Rover in 2019, and establishing his own consultancy, Callum was himself the on-stage recipient of three World Car Awards trophies on behalf of Jaguar. 

“The World Car Awards are held in the highest regard by the industry and as a recipient, I appreciate how much it means to a design team to have it proudly on display in the studio,” says Ian Callum. “Reimagining both the design and manufacture is a huge privilege and just the opportunity the team at CALLUM relish.” 

In addition to creating these new trophies, Callum is one of six worldwide automotive design experts on a Design Panel that reviews all candidates for the World Car Design of the Year award, then establishes a short-list of recommendations for voting by the WCA’s jury of 100+ international automotive journalists – including Electrifying.com’s own Ginny Buckley. 

Details of the new CALLUM designed trophies will be revealed in advance of the awards ceremonies to be held at the New York International Auto Show on April 6, 2023.
