YouTube has updated the Silver and Gold Creator Awards, unveiling a new design for the play button plaques.
Previously framed, the new awards now take the form of an engraved metallic plaque, though still features the YouTube play button logo. The new designs compliment the multi-dimensional Diamond Creator Award fitted with a crystal centre.
The new awards will be made from steel, when previously the awards were made from silver and gold plated brass.
The Silver Award is presented to creators who have amassed 100,000 subscribers, while the Gold Creator Award recognises those with one million subscribers or more. The Diamond Award, reserved for the platforms largest creators, rewards the achievement of gaining 10 million subscribers.
