The legendary UAE Desert Challenge, one of the world’s most prestigious international motorsport cross country rallies founded in 1991.

The Challenge

Emirates Motorsports Organization (ESMO) needed high-end awards for the event, requiring:

  • Stand out medals that portrayed the prestige of the event
  • Made from quality material to represent the huge effort these competitors put into the race
  • Very tight turnaround time from concept to delivery – only 18 days


ESMO chose to partner Badges and Medals as they recognised the design qualities and experience. Badges and Medals provided:

  • Proposed high-end design concepts using the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge brand identity
  • Organized a virtual meeting with key stakeholders in Abu Dhabi to clearly communicate and discuss final detailing and logistics
  • Produced high quality medals that exceeded the brief
  • Medals delivered in 18 days to the event location
