YouTube: What are Awards (Play Buttons)
To celebrate your achievements, YouTube created the YouTube Creator Awards. This award is in the form of a play button, and is given to those who reach certain subscriber milestones.
There are three tiers:
- 100,000 Subscribers-Silver Play Button
- 1,000,000 Subscribers-Gold Play Button
- 10,000,000 Subscribers-Diamond Play Button
How do you claim your play button once you reach these milestones?
In the month after you reach one of the above milestones, you will receive a notification on your YouTube Creator Studio Dashboard so that you can add your personal information for the delivery of the award.
