Let's celebrate your hard work
Creators pour their heart and soul into their videos, and we're honoured to celebrate them when they reach Creator Award subscriber milestones.

The Creator Award Milestones
How it works
Creator Awards are given at YouTube's sole discretion and we only recognise creators that have played by the rules. Channels are subject to review before awards are issued. That means rewarding creators that keep their accounts in good standing without copyright strikes, community guideline violations or artificially increased subscriber counts, among other criteria.
Claim your award
If your channel's eligibility is approved, you'll get a notification on your Creator Studio within one week of passing a Creator Awards milestone. The notification will include a unique redemption code that you'll need to enter on our redemption portal. Once there, all you need to do is fill in your channel name and delivery information.
Once you've submitted all of your information, we'll begin handcrafting your Creator Award. Depending on where you live, it takes us 2–3 weeks to build and dispatch your award. You'll want to use this time to work out where to hang it.
