I have to side with trophies on this one for similar reasons as mentioned earlier (prizes could be for a faction the winner doesn't collect/isn't interested in collecting), plus trophies give you bragging rights :)

Trophies all the way.

What I have found nice in a recent event I went to was a few random lucky door prizes. You exclude those that get a podium place and give out a few random prizes. Nothing huge....dice, templates, book, small box set. It's a bonus for those that might not otherwise get something.

Trophies for sure. I think it encourages a friendlier environment if there's no monetary value attached to winning. If you're in war dollies for the money you picked the wrong sport. :p

Really what do I care, I never win anyway- there are a lot of players who will be in the same boat, so remember that for there to be a need for trophies there need to be players. Look at may be a trophies for some out of the box reasons as well or a participation award. Make sure you choose the type of event that need to have trophies, some tournaments can award no prizes for winning all games but doing other things. ( Perth dose not seem to do this anymore).

Just my thoughts.

Reduce ticket prices and abolish prizes and trophies.

A belated thanks to everyone who voted in this poll. I was surprised by the result, I hadn't expected trophies to be so much more popular than prizes, but it was great to get a view from different perspectives.
Since this poll, I have arranged trophies for the events I've been helping to organise.

I'd rather win a trophy 74% [ 29 ]
I'd rather win a prize 13% [ 5 ]
I'd rather only win a trophy for 1st, and a prize for anything else 13% [ 5 ] x
