The Big One

The overall winner trophy

We kicked off the Tribu-te Show in London 2019 with the announcement of our very-first The Big One UK trophy winners! The awards, which we  launched earlier in the Summer, have been running successfully in France for the past 10 years – and in 2019, we decided it was time to bring them to the UK. 

Hosted by Nicky Pope and Lilly Cox, the UK publisher and editor of TRIBU-TE magazine respectively, all the finalists were invited up onto the West End stage to take a bow in front of a sell-out Tribu-te Show audience in the beautiful Aldywch Theatre. It was the perfect way to celebrate the calibre of entries received and to honour the hardwork and skill of all our finalists regardless of the result. (See the full list of finalists here). 

The global publisher of TRIBU-TE, Mike Vincent was called onto the stage to reveal the winners and award the trophies for each of the seven celebrated categories of The Big One UK. A final trophy – The Big One – was presented to the overall winner, and in 2019 it was a pleasure and privileged to present The Big One to the winner of  The Up & Coming One: Federico Patelli from Toni&Guy. Huge congratulations to all our winners and finalists.
